JPEGmini Promises Better Compression without Visible IQ Degradation
A start-up called ICVT says it has developed new compression algorithms that promise much smaller JPEG file sizes without any visible loss of quality. As reported by Megapixel magazine, the new JPEGmini is compatible with existing JPEG specifications but allows you to preserve most of your pictures’ original image quality while achieving a considerably higher compression ratio,.resulting in approximately 80% smaller file sizes. (Of course you could achieve a similar compression ratio with existing technologies too, but IQ would suffer.) You can try the JPEGmini technology yourself, using your own photos, at the website below.
