How to make smaller backup images of Rpi SD card?

I always keep backups of my raspberry pi's, but the only way that I've ever seen to do this is using the dd command on OSX. It works fine, I keep a few backups this way, and it's very easy, but it becomes troublesome when every backup is the full size of the SD card, which is usually 16GB. I'm pretty sure I've seen people upload their rPi images to websites before with much smaller file sizes. Is there a better way to do this? Any way to backup a pi without a huge file size, or maybe compress it afterward?

Lionel Morse Code J-38 base WWII Signal Corps US Army Telegraph Key

Lionel Morse Code J-38 base WWII Signal Corps US Army Telegraph Key

Made in the USA, in the 40's, by Lionel Corporation and used during the WWII years.

The J-38 type of CW/Morse keys were used by all branches of the US military. Were manufactured as part of the the war effort by a few specialized US companies. They manufactured them almost identical and sometimes it is hard to recognize the factory that produced that particular model.

Some of the companies were:

American Radio Hardware (ARH), Lionel Corporation, Telegraph Apparatus Corporation (TAC) and there were two more of unknown manufacture: One made entirely of brass including its frame and, the last one, made entirely of white metal including the frame.

They look all the same and parts are interchangeable between different manufacturers.

Very small differences that could give away the possible manufacturer are known.
