You can't make an image smaller without loosing quality, higher detail takes more space to save, that's the law of computers.
However if you want to reduce the image size from ex. 2048x1536 to 512x384 you'll only have a one 16:th of the pixels left making the image about one 16th of the size without loosing noticeable quality unless the user zooms the image.
