*** JPEGmini is a robust image optimization tool, trusted by tens of thousands of photographers, that reduces photo file size by up to 80% without compromising quality.***

What’s New:

• Improved User Experience and a fresh look
• More Resizing Options
• Bug fixes

JPEGmini has been reviewed and praised by dozens of photography publications and bloggers, among them are: DPReview, Forbes, Fstoppers, Petapixel, Macworld, Photography Life, Phoblographer, Shotkit, Noupe, SLR Lounge and many more.

“Frankly, it blows me away.” Kishore Sawh, SLR Lounge

"As far as ease of use, it is hard to make a simpler piece of software. When you are using the desktop software, you simply drag your JPEG files onto the program and then the JPEGmini Algorithm does its magic, compressing your images and saving you tons of space."
Anthony Thurston, Phoblographer

"JPEGmini is without a doubt the most amazing piece of software I’ve come across since I first used Photoshop 10 years ago. In my opinion, it is essential” Mark Condon, Shotkit

“I found it hard to believe that the software would result in that much space savings, so I opened up the JPEG image on my computer and analyzed the file pixel by pixel. Going back and forth a number of times, I could not see ANY differences in quality”
Nasim Mansurov, Photography life

JPEGmini Lite enables you to optimize up to 20 photos per day. To optimize an unlimited amount of photos, get JPEGmini.

JPEGmini benefits:

• Optimize photos up to 28MP (for larger resolution photos, check out JPEGmini Pro)

• Send Hi-Res photos faster

• Use smaller USB drives to deliver photos to customers

• Faster loading websites and thus improve Google search rank and customer satisfaction

• Save tons of hard drive space

It’s as simple as Drag, Drop, Done.

Press the “Choose” button to select individual photos, or drag a folder or group of photos onto the app. During the optimization process, you will see a preview of your photos, and a rolling counter with the amount of disk space you are saving.

Don’t compromise on quality!

JPEGmini is a tool intended for professional photographers who are constantly challenged by the bloated file sizes of photos and the constraints it puts on them.

Works as advertised

I've tried a number of JPEG optimization tools in the last fourteen years. Photoshop's Bicubic Algorithm came along about PS7 and got subsequently better in CS1 and CS2. From that point until now there was nothing significantly better. i'm working on a graphic intensive web site and had saved all the images at 50% in the Save For Web dialog which was my compromise between file size and quality. (PS Bicubic has a huge jump in file size between 50% and 51%).

To test out the value of JPEGmini I duplicated half a dozen images that were already optimized for the site and ran them through the app. Then I dropped a layer of the JPEGmini image on the original Photoshop optimized image and zoomed in while cliciing on and off the visibility eyeball to observe any differences. At 100% there was no perceptible difference. At higher zoom percentages there was a slight difference but it wasn't obvious what was going on because artifacting didn't increase.

The results of my test convinced me to do the in-app purchase to the full version and proceeded to optimize all my site images. Individual image file sizes dropped from 10 to 25%. To me that was a significant and worthwhile saving in page load times. I'm sold.

Great Compression

The compression is excellent. Although the original app would only replace the source image, the current version allows a separate copy. My examination at the pixel level showed the compression to not introduce any new artifacts or distortion. However, it is clear that at the pixel level, things have changed. Generally the change is such that the jpg-file should not be used for any further editing, because changes of changes can get introduced in a way that can make the artifacts easily detectable. One should always keep the original file around if further editing is a possibility.

The only reason I did not give the app 5 stars is that I create giant jpg-files that exceed the 28-megabyte limit, and I would prefer that the app be able to deal with at least 128-megabyte files.

Does what it does really well

I needed something to shrink the size of photos and this hits the nail on the head. It’s a bit more expensive than I’d prefer and the screen has some frivalous features like total bytes saved but the overall functionality is spot-on and the quality appears to be excellent. My only concern is that you have to chose to either overwrite files in place at the same resolution or write another file somewhere else at a revised resolution - not a big deal but seems like an odd way to design the software since I want to both shrink the size and the resolution on most of my photo files.

Overall, however, great software and worth the $20 I paid for it.
