So even with the large hard drives we have these days, it’s still really easy to have hard drives full of photos. This is where a program called JPEGMini comes into it. JPEGMini is a program that runs on Windows and MAC. If you buy the standard version it can run as a standalone application. If you shell out and extra $30USD, then you get that plus you can use JPEGMini as plugin for your favourite editing application, either Capture One, Lightroom Classic or Photoshop. If you use one of these programs, this is where the real power of the program comes into it. I use Capture One, and as a plugin, you can just add it to a recipe and it just becomes part of your workflow. So when you output a file and you want to use JPEGMini as well, you just add it to your recipe and it exports, optimises with JPEGMini and then just outputs the optimised file. No mucking around, as I say, it just becomes part of your workflow.

For more info, check out the video above. It will take you through installing JPEGMini in Windows 10, running it as a standalone app and as a plugin for Capture One. In addition, I run through some tests to show you how much it shrinks the file size and how much time it takes.

Catch you next time.
