Question: How to reduce iPhone file size

How do I reduce the file size of a photo on my iPhone X? I am trying to upload a photo, and get an error message that the file size needs to be under 8 MB.

Email the photo to yourself from your iPhone, and after hitting "Send" you should get a dialogue box:-

User uploaded file



This was produced in my 6s, so the sizes on offer will be different on your X. Select a reduced size, and send.


Open the email on your iPhone, and save the reduced-size file, then upload that one to the site.
