Do you need help installing or using ZunTzu? Would you like to report a bug?

How to reduce the size of a jpg file?

Post by lclaudius »

Folks, can someone give hints on how to reduce the size of jpg files? I tend to err on the side of caution and my image files end up too big for comfort.

Hi Iclaudius,

Try using Irfanview to vary the size/quality of your files.

With scanned images .jpegs are usually more economical, but .pngs are often much better with computer generated ones...

Regards, Bill.

80% quality seems to be a nice balance between size and clarity.

I tend to use a quality of 75% to 90% to get significant file size savings on jpegs.
