With the aid of this application, you will be able to shrink the dimension of your JPG image collection by apllying compression algorithms
Romeolight JPEGmicro is a lightweight, yet efficient application intended for users who want to dial down the impact of their photo collection (in JPG format) on the disk space. It also provides an option to remove EXIF data and to create a backup of the original files.
Ease of use and accessibility
Romeolight JPEGmicro adopts a rather simplistic approach when it comes to appearance, but stays faithful to the purpose it has in mind. It relies on a clean and complication-free installation process and sports an intuitive and user-friendly interface that is quite easy to experiment with.
In contrast with many similar utilities that work with one file at a time, Romeolight JPEGmicro is able to process multiple items in one run. Files can be added only by drag and drop, in the absence of a menu that can achieve that, but this is not a major downside.
All the files are listed neatly in the main window, with details such as current size and path and once they have been compressed, the optimized size and the status (which indicates the compression factor) will also become available.
Speed and efficiency
Romeolight JPEGmicro processes JPG files at very good speed, but depending on the number of items in the queue, you will experience a certain delay when a lot of images are at stake.
The upper advantage of the utility is that it manages to preserve the quality of the original files as much as possible. However, a certain alteration is noticeable.
An overall versatile application
All aspects considered, Romeolight JPEGmicro does a good job. The original files are backed up prior to the resizing process and EXIF data can be removed from your digital photos, all at the cost of a few clicks.
