I don't know a direct method of 'shrink' the file.size but reducing the image width and height will solve the problem.

You can use imagemagick or mogrify to reduce size/quality to make te file smaller physically as well as on the disk, you can also compress the image using zip/rar/gzip etc.

Can you help with this problem?
