Advanced JPEG Compressor 2008 is an invaluable and useful tool for everyone who knows what is a digital image. This is definitely a must-have utility if you own a scanner or a digital camera, use digital images whether at work, or at home. This program allows you to convert images to JPEG format using the most powerful JPEG compression engine, shrink the large file size of your graphic files, optimize pictures for quickly loading from the Web, e-mail smaller image files faster and not exceeding email size limitations, resize images and make thumbnails.
Advanced JPEG Compressor can acquire pictures from your scanner or digital camera, and save them in the JPG format with the highest quality / file size ratio. You can easily scan, compress and e-mail photos from Advanced JPEG Compressor. This program works as dedicated JPEG converter, allowing you to open existing images in many formats (BMP, TIFF, GIF, PNG, ...), and a JPEG optimizer, compressing existing JPG images. Hold the defined compression ratio is a unique feature for graphic software that allows you to create images whose file size is limited by the defined compression ratio (like the "bit rate" parameter for audio files), and does not depend on their content.
* Interactivity - the process of compression becomes visual, effectively trading image quality with file size by adjusting the compressor's settings. It also offers a preview of the resulting image immediately in the result image preview window
* Multi-document interface allows you to work with many images at the same time, enabling you to view and compare different compression parameters applied to either the same or different images
* Advanced JPEG compression engine, specially optimized for higher image quality, considerably reduces the file size of images and provides the most comprehensive set of options to tune the compression level
* Compression profiles considerably improve processing of multiple images with similar characteristics. A compression profile contains the most important compression parameters along with resizing information. You can create, save, edit and apply named compression profiles
* Graphic Detail Quality Equalizer is a unique feature that gives you significant flexibility in adjusting the compressed image quality. Its 5 bands are intended to tune the compression level applied to the image details with different sizes (ranging from large to small)
* Compression-oriented image prefiltering helps to achieve better compression/optimization results and improve the visual appearance of an image. You can choose one of five filters and change the level and radius (depth) of applying the active filter
* Separate compression sliders for Luma(intensity) and Chroma(color) channels allow you to gain better compression results, eliminate color artefacts, and significantly improve the compressed image quality
* Hold the defined compression ratio is a unique feature for graphic software that allows you to create images whose file size is limited by the defined compression ratio (like the "bit rate" parameter for audio files), and does not depend on their content
* Selective image compression - some areas of the image can be compressed more or less than others. This useful feature allows you to save high quality for the most important parts of the image (faces,etc.), and lower for the rest, achieving excellent compression results
* Progressive JPEG images support; images in this format being published on the Web will be incrementally displayed (gradually improving their quality) during loading from the Internet or other communications
* Additional options for adjusting precision of compression allow you to get the best result depending on the priority: small file size or high image quality (which means large file size)
* Ability to acquire images from TWAIN compliant devices - such as scanners or digital cameras
* Image Resizing(Resampling) by using one of three implemented high-quality interpolation methods
* Viewing/Editing the invisible text (signature, copyright notice, comments, etc.) embedded in your JPEG file
* Possibility to crop unnecessary portions of the image
* Easy-to-use and highly customizable user interface
Advanced JPEG Compressor also offers different modes of zooming, centering, different arrangements of source and result images, visual replacement of result by source image for better examination of compression results, image preview before opening, E-mail option, Windows clipboard support, and more.
