Question

I have a 5760px x 3840px image with a filesize of1.14MB. I would like to reduce its filesize to 200KB without altering its dimensions.

This could be achieved by using the function "File>Save for Web..."

SaveForWeb1

In the upper right corner you can select a preset and the file type. If you select JPEG and go with the settings in the picture above, you will get a small resolution picture with the same dimensions. You can play around with the settings and in the bottom left corner you can see the current size of the image. (My picture is now 4.669KB)

Hope this method will also help you in the future because you can do this for any image type by just selecting a different one in the upper right corner!
