In the field that says JPEG, you will choose which type you want to save your file. If you choose JPEG, you are likely to reduce your file to an average of 20 to 100 kb.

You can decide the area that says Medium according to the resolution of the photo. If you choose lower than Medium, the quality of your photo will decrease considerably.
