This extension compresses images on Airtable using TinyPNG. You just need to name the field where the images are stored and it will shrink their file size + upload them to a new field. You can also set it up to automatically process any new records going forward (unlimited records).
Works with standard file types: JPEG, JPG and PNG
⚠️ This extension removes Exif metadata after compression. Also, it does not change image dimensions, only makes the file size smaller. For resizing, use this extension.
My new images are showing as gray icons, why?
These placeholders mean that Airtable is still working on generating your thumbnails. This process takes time. Just wait!
When I click on an attachment, I see this!
This is also Airtable processing your files. It could take hours and will resolve on its own. Don’t worry!
Some of my images have not been compressed, why?
Because their file type is not supported by TinyPNG. Like GIF.
My attachment field contains non-image files, what will happen to them?
Any non-supported file will be copied over in its original state. Example: docs, videos, etc.
Will my image dimensions change?
No, this extension only makes the file size smaller.
