2.2.4
16 March 2019

Compress JPEGs up to 500%.

Overview

JPEGmini is a patent-pending photo recompression technology, which significantly reduces the size of photographs without affecting their perceptual quality. The technology works in the domain of baseline JPEG, resulting in files that are fully compatible with any browser, photo software or device that support the standard JPEG format.

JPEGmini reduces the file size of your photos by up to 5X, while keeping their original resolution, quality and JPEG format. With JPEGmini you can optimize all your photos to free up valuable hard drive space, and share full-resolution photos with your friends much faster. JPEGmini supports personal photos with a resolution of 2 to 17 megapixels.

Features
  • Supports personal photos from 2 megapixels up to 17 megapixels
  • Drag photos, folders, or complete hard drives onto the app to optimize them
  • Stunning animation shows photo previews during processing
  • Savings counter shows amount of hard drive space saved
  • Share your savings on Facebook and Twitter

No lossless or anyway near, it's a good tool, it can save lots of megabytes and the result is pretty good, basically it's an app that studies the compression for each image so it stops compressing when it starts to make visible artifacts, the results are very good, 99% of the original with savings in file size of 60%. BUT, it marks files with a tag to know if it was already compressed, if the algoritm was as good as they talk, then it should not be need any exif or comment tag. So I rip off the comments and exif and tried that image again to know if it would stop compressing, unfortunately it didin't, what I found out is if rip of color information in each iteration. So it's not as good as they talk on their web site, but still very good app. I think it's too expensive. The problem with Photoshop Save for the web etc, is that is not automatically for each photo, some will be perfect with 60%, others with 40%, etc, what this app does, is dynamically adapts to each photo, as that was the purpose for them in the first place (Server Script to save Disk Space). If it didn't rip color information in every iteration (only possible if i rip the "security" tag it puts on files), then it would be perfect app.

Crushes JPEGs without any discernible loss. Other free tools do the job, but JPEG Mini really shines through on large images. I use it on web projects with really large hero images.

Very simple to use. Pretty. Unfortunately, its jpeg output is not as good as promised (on a par with Adobe Photoshop CS6 but falling behind Preview, ResizeMe and PhotoBatcher): https://foliovision.com/2016/01/best-image-resizer Still for its drag and drop simplicity and acceptable output quality, JPEGmini is well worth consideration.

I exported 14 images from Lightroom for posting to the web, and then ran them through JPEGmini to see how much space I could save. Surprisingly, JPEGmini skipped every one of the 14 images, and reported that it could not optimize them further. From this I've concluded that Lightroom does a great job optimizing images for the web, so there's no need for me to use JPEGmini.

While I didn't spend too much time with this, I found that for my particular images GraphicConverter's "Save for Web" worked a lot better. While JPEGmini improves on Photoshop's "Save for Web", it won't accept .psd files as input (GraphicConverter does). JPEGmini has one thing going for it: It's dead simple. But if you don't mind staring at the screen for a minute to figure out which of the many menus and buttons to press, GraphicConverter is the much better value, and its results are better too.

Photoshop Save for the Web and JPEGmini are completely different tools, JPEGmini auto adapts the best compression ratio and stops as soon as it would start to have visible artifacts, try do the same with Photoshop Save for the Web or Graphic Converter etc. .psd files are no good format to it either, because .psd is a Photoshop format that uses bitmap lossless compression, and the purposes are way different

@Surfspirit: The "Save for Web" feature of the programs mentioned creates JPG and PNG from any format. So not only does GraphicConverter give better results, it's also more convenient,
