It allows you to visually see the effect of compression (something some expensive graphics packages expect you to do blind), with tools for cropping, resizing, controlling contrast/brightness and color balance - all while keeping an eye on file size and loading time for an average modem.
Use Hotkeys to show and hide tool windows, view original and optimized images side by side - Interactive JPEG Optimizer never changes your original image; it always works with a copy so if you make a mistake you can start over from scratch! Tired of how long it takes to email photos to family and friends? Zipping the image helps, but graphics files, unlike plain text files can be enormous!
This is strictly related to the image size and the compression algorithm used to originally store the file. Over the years, a variety of compression algorithms have been developed to reduce the size of the stored image without adversely affecting the image quality.
Some of our competitors claim to take advantage of advanced compression techniques, such as variable compression, yet when we took a 63K Before image from one of our competitor's websites, we were able to achieve similar quality to their After image in under 4K - the best they could manage was almost 10K!
Comprehensive online help walks you through the image optimization process step by step, clearly explaining every aspect of the image optimization process. If you need additional help Handy Productions offers free pre-sale and post-sale technical support to every user of Interactive JPEG Optimizer!
