iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of saving your iPhone photos in the default format? Do you want to save them as JPEG images instead?

Well, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, I will guide you through the process of saving your iPhone photos as JPEG files. So, let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Photos App

Firstly, open the Photos app on your iPhone. This app is represented by a colorful flower-like icon. Tap on it to open.

Step 2: Select the Photo

Browse through your photo library and select the photo you want to save as a JPEG file. Once you’ve found it, tap on it to open it in full-screen mode.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Share’

At the bottom left corner of your screen, you will see a square with an arrow pointing outwards. This is the ‘Share’ button. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Choose ‘Save as File’

A menu with various options will appear. Scroll through this menu until you find an option that says ‘Save as File’. Tap on it to continue.

Step 5: Select ‘JPEG’

A list of file formats will appear. Look for ‘JPEG’ among them and tap on it to select.


If you don’t see ‘JPEG’ listed, make sure that your iPhone software is up-to-date. If not, go to Settings > General > Software Update and install any available updates.

Step 6: Choose Quality (Optional)

If desired, you can choose a specific quality level for your JPEG image. The higher the quality level, the larger the file size will be. Tap on the desired quality option to select it.

Step 7: Save the Photo

Finally, tap on the ‘Save’ button at the top right corner of your screen. Your iPhone will now save the selected photo as a JPEG file.

Step 8: Access Saved JPEG Photo

To access your saved JPEG photo, go to your Photos app and navigate to the ‘Recents’ or ‘Albums’ tab. Your newly saved JPEG photo should be there, ready for you to view and share with others!

Additional Tips:

  • Backup your Photos: It’s always a good idea to regularly backup your photos to avoid any accidental loss.
  • Experiment with Different Quality Levels: If you’re unsure about which quality level to choose, try saving the same photo at different levels and compare them on a computer or other devices.
  • Consider File Size: Keep in mind that higher quality levels result in larger file sizes, which may take up more storage space on your device or cause slower upload/download speeds.

Congratulations! You have successfully saved an iPhone photo as a JPEG file.

Now you can enjoy the benefits of this widely supported image format. Feel free to experiment with different photos and share them with friends and family!

I hope you found this tutorial helpful. If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out. Happy saving!
