JPEGmini vs SpaceSaver [ interesting comparison ]

Why buy JPEGmini or Spacesaver ? JPEGmini & SpaceSaver are Jpeg optimisation programs. In basic terms, they make your JPEG files smaller, with very minimal loss of image quality. These are specialist programs – while photoshop & Lightroom provide some level image compression, JPEG mini & Space Saver are experts at it! For a photographer,...

    I’ll DEFINITELY be trying this out Brooke! Thanks for sharing, i hadnt heard of this software beforeReplyCancel

      Hi Kathryn, no worries, the compression is pretty impressive. Make sure you start will a full size file first. So don’t compress in LR or PS first. If you compress in LR or PS first, the resulting compressed file will actually be slight larger than if you compress straight from full-size file xxReplyCancel

    I cannot see any difference at all! This is brilliant!! ReplyCancel

    • SandpiperPhotographyDecember 20, 2019 - 11:32 pm

      either of these are a must have! SpaceSaver has a bit of an edge in terms of file size reduction and speed, but JPEGmini also does a great job xReplyCancel

    I hadn’t even considered compression software for photographs I post on my website – thank you for this informationReplyCancel
