How to reduce the size of an image file.


If the file size of a saved GIF is too large, you can reduce the file size through the following methods.


1. REC: Lowering the FPS

If the FPS is too high when recording videos, please try to reduce the FPS to 10 or lower.

FPS indicates the number of frames per second. The file size can increase in proportion to the FPS.

2. Edit: Deleting frames, reducing the number of frames

If the file size of an animated image is larger than you expected:
1) The file size can be reduced by selecting frames that can be deleted from the frame list and deleting them, or
2) by reducing the total number of frames through the [Reducing the number of frames] feature on the toolbar.

3. Using the image size adjust feature

If an image being recorded is large (e.g., larger than 640 × 480), the file size of an animated GIF can become very large. For example, if the resolution is 640 × 480, the number of pixels is four times more than a video with a 320 × 240 resolution. Therefore, the file size can increase by up to four times.

If you think that the file size of an image is too large, please try the [Adjusting size] feature on the Edit tab of Honeycam to reduce the file size.

4. File extension: Using the WebP or WebM format instead of the GIF format

The file size of a GIF can become very large because of its low compression rate
—a consequence of it being an old file format.


If you save a file in the WebP or the WebM format instead of the GIF format,
the file size can be reduced by up to 1/10.

5. Settings: Decreasing the quality value

From the Settings (F5) menu of Honeycam, the size of a file being saved can be reduced by lowering the GIF quality value or the WebP quality value.
