onesinalife Posted January 25, 2009 Share Posted January 25, 2009 Hello all members. I already tried to discuss this matter in a previous thread “Compressing pics without loosing visible quality”, I try to be more specific here: Normally I open by photos in paint.net, I crop and resize them to 550*412 pixels, and I save then as jpeg with file size 40k by reducing the quality to about 90%. Recently (or since I have a new camera) I had to go down to 20% quality in order to achieve limit file size of 40k (which is really destroying the photo). Then I had a comment by someone93 who did copy/paste to the picture and had no problem compressing it afterward. I invite you to do the following test and share with me your conclusion. 1. Download and save the photo “original.jpeg” attached here. 2. open it in paint.net and try to save it again in 40k size jpeg. It will probably need a quality of about 20%. 3. now do: edit ->select all -> edit ->copy , file ->new ->paste. 4. now try to save again the pasted photo as a jpeg. probably this time it will be possible to reach file size of 40k with quality of 90%. What is the explanation for this behaviour? Thanks in advance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
