Interactive JPEG Optimizer is exactly what the title says, it
optimizes your jpeg image files; it minimizes the file size which lessens the
quality of the jpeg image file. This product is great for web graphics because
website graphics need to be small and optimized (lower quality) to download
quickly. The help tips are worth reading prior to using so you understand how
this program works quickly! Note this product isn't for casual digital imaging
editing or resizing. The user must understand image file quality to use this
product or they may end up destroying precious files that they cannot fix.
I really like the WYSIWYG interface that allows you to alter the image(s) while
you are looking at the image deterioration and size difference. The layout of
this feature is so good that it is like a game, seeing how low can you go before
the image becomes distorted.
I wish this was a time out or number of image trial because the demo only marks
put on each file optimized made it harder to tell how good the image quality was
after being reduced for size efficiency.
