Last week review 15/2015

Last week review 15/2015 and this week spring finally made it, yesterday it almost felt like summer ūüėČ

Last week review 15/2015This week we took a look at the exaggerated statements from JPEGMini about file size reduction after already checked out the flowery statements from compressor.io.

I already checked out compressor.io quiet a while ago and this resulted into not needing such a tool or webservice if you install yourself  IrfanView .

Last week review 15/2015To make it short, comparing compressor.io and JPEGMini the results are almost equal. The stated file size reduction rates ¬†are much exaggerated and depend very much on the original qualitiy of the JPEG file. Taking a JPEG exported at a qualitiy setting of 90% with Lightroom the reduction in file size is pretty good. But you right away export your JPEG with a qualitiy setting of lets say 65% and you reach the same file sizes and don’t need another tool or webservice like JPEGMini.

I export my images to be published on Google+ or flickr with a longest size of 2000px and a quality setting of 65%. The difference between this image and an image exported with a very high qualitiy setting is negligible. And you gain another advantage using Lightroom right away for the export, you can apply borders and/or copyright marks within the export process.

Once in a while you should start programs that are seldomly used, especially if these programs provide a update function. ¬†HDRSoft released a bugfix update of Photomatix Pro to version 5.05 which includes the Lightroom plugin.¬†Gardengnome released version 4.5.3 of their¬†¬†Pano2VR software. Both companies don’t give further informations about which bugs were fixed.

KeyPass, a password safe, which i use very often, released an update to Version 2.29.

I hope that some of the articles on this blog gained your interests and i look ahead to your comments/suggestions. And don’t forget, i installed a feed for you via feedburner .
