I dont normally post single images but this one I liked and as I was invited to test a new compression tool I thought I would share my findings!
Just using Gimp alone I would have to reduce the quality of the original image to 76% to get the same file size as this image which was created via http://www.jpegmini.com
Now Im no expert on the technical issues surrounding Jpeg compression and quiet honestly Im not sure what I should be looking for as a bench mark. I have noticed a pixalation in the darker shadows when zoomed in but if one tries to squeeze
everything into a 512k file size there will be deterioration somewhere.
Oh by the way the tree is still alive dispite its worn looks it has new green growth already! A welcome sign of spring!
