Celebration of family & friendship in Maleny

What an amazing oasis it is nestled in a beautiful rainforest setting. It has some amazing little spots to capture stunning outdoor portraits....

    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,...

        Hi Nicole, I’ve update with the test results now x Definitely worth the investment to get one of these programs!ReplyCancel

    • Kathryn hillDecember 20, 2019 - 8:45 pm

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

      • SandpiperPhotographyDecember 20, 2019 - 11:34 pm

        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

    • TiannaDecember 20, 2019 - 11:30 pm

      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

    • JoanneDecember 21, 2019 - 8:03 am

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

        no worries at all 🙂 I hope it helpsReplyCancel
