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 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.

I was skeptical, but it just works


When JPEGmini first came out, I couldn’t believe the space savings. Years of use have made it a solid part of my photo export workflow. Very, very happy with the results.

Do not throw in Photos library to JPEGmini if you use iCloud photo library.

If you do that, JPEGmini will optimize photos in the library anyway, but Photos will not know the fact that photos were optimized by an external application. As a result you will face a huge duplication problem after a Time machine recovery or an OS X migration transfer, when Photos fails to match local photos (optimized) with remote photos (not optimized) on Apple’s server. Since Photos will recognize them as different sets of photos, you will have a doubled library with local photos being uploaded and remote photos being downloaded. To sort out the mess, you will have to manually select each duplicated photo in Photos app, which will be nearly impossible when you have tens of thosands photos. To avoid this unwanted situation with Photos optimized, you have either (1) not to use iCloud photo library at all; or (2) to import photos elsewhere before optimizing them and then to add to Photos library. And both respectively have issues. For the latter, you should turn off iCloud photo library on the iPhone and use a third-party utility to import photos from it. As El Capitan added extension APIs for Photos app, I wish JPEGmini would address this issue somehow in near future.

Works EXACTLY like it’s supposed to

A perfect little app — that’s how it’s been for me. I’ve had it for quite a while now and use it almost daily. Through all updates and iterations it has never failed to perform just like it should, both on my 2011 iMac and 2013 Macbook Air. Little updates pop up on a fairly regular basis; I’ve interpreted this not as an app that needs work, but rather as a committed, fastidious developer focused on perfection.

I’ve been wanting to back up my photos in the cloud for extra insurance but didn’t want to pay for all that space if I didn’t have to. So I dropped my entire photo folder into the open app and let it do its thing. Now that it’s almost 4 times smaller, uploading to cloud storage is much more affordable (and faster to boot). Because of this, the app has already paid for itself.

This has easily been one of my most satisfying App Store purchases. It’s a model of what good apps should aspire to be — polished, intuitive, and flawlessly functional.
