Last year I shared my method of how I export my photos for sharing with clients and social media without losing quality. While that method is proven, it was always still a pain to share a separate file for full resolution, not to mention that full resolution photos can push 20 MB a piece. Thankfully, I was introduced to an app that overcomes all of this.
I was recently introduced to an application called JPEGmini. The purpose of this app is to cut your photo file's size in half or more without sacrificing any resolution or quality. I was skeptical at first but I put it to the test in my video above. Take a look for yourself.
According to the JPEGmini plugin I saved 11.4 MB of file space, and my final image resulted in a size of 3.9 MB. Not bad for starting with a 36-megapixel raw file.
I was pleasantly surprised how the quality is retained when sharing my exported photos to Facebook. My photos still look crisp even though they are still full resolution. This app is a game changer for myself and makes it so much easier to share with clients, friends, and social media without having to create multiple files for different purposes.
The JPEGmini Pro bundle comes with a few options, most notably its new Photoshop plugin, and it also comes with a Lightroom plugin as well as its stand-alone application. All together it is on special for a limited time at $99. For more information about the plugin, check out their website.
