This app reduces image size by changing the resolution and quality of the image. It also removes exif data before sending the image. The modified image is saved in a separate folder in jpeg, png or webp format. The original image remains unchanged.

Imagepipe will receive a send intent for images, modify the image and send the changed image onward. Therefore, it takes you only one touch to pipe the image before sending!

Imagepipe also supports sharing and processing multiple pictures at once.

The image can also be edited with Imagepipe.

The app is light wight (small apk) and also supports legacy devices with low screen resolutions down to QVGA (320 x 240 pixels).
