.jpg compression

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

Newbie here. Really like this Paint.NET program but one suggestion. Could you possibly increase the compression? especially .jpg images.

I loaded up a photo taken from my phone and reduced the image size considerably, but the image size was still pretty huge.

I ended up having to load it into Paint Shop Pro to reduce it because it was still too big to email it.

 

Apart from that it's a great project you have here. If compression rate were increased/improved then I would probably drop

Paint Shop Pro all together!

 

 

Regards,

You must adjust the compression level in des SAVE dialogue (Save Configuration). Better quality = less compression. Lower Quality = higher compression.

Danke, I was using the 'save as' option instead of 'save' :/

SAVE AS is also correct. It doesn't matter. Using SAVE is better if the image already exist and can be overwritten. SAVE AS is better for choosing a new name and filetype.

All it asks for is file name and to save it.

 

No. Not only the NAME. You have there below the field for the name a pulldown menu for the FILETYPE. Standard is PNG. But even there a dialog pops up after clicking SAVE. The same on JPEG with other options (see my screenshot).
