JPG Compression


Recommended Posts

The compression for JPG does not seem to be very good. I have exported the same exact image at 80% from Fireworks and from Paint.net. Fireworks gave me a file at 12.7K. Paint.net gave me an image of 63.5K. I tried 70% in Paint.net incase the percentages were different. This time the file was still high at 61.5K, and the quality was now unacceptable.

This is a big difference, especially when the images are being used on the Web. Are there any plans to improve this? I have searched the forum and the roadmap and don't see anything about it. Maybe I'm doing something incorrectly?

Make sure that the image size is the same in both programs...the same width/height in pixels (not inches/centimeters).

Also, make sure when you save the file that you are using the same bit depth...24 bit is probably what you want. Fireworks may be doing 16-bit color quality (this could yield a much smaller file).
