TEL AVIV, Israel, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
JPEGmini, ICVT's patent-pending photo optimization technology, now available as a desktop app
ICVT, creators of the JPEGmini and VIDEOmini media optimization technologies, announces the release of JPEGmini for Mac, a Mac app which frees up precious hard drive space by optimizing photo files. JPEGmini's patent-pending optimization technology reduces the file size of photos by up to 5X, while keeping their original resolution, quality and JPEG format.
With JPEGmini for Mac, users can quickly optimize full photo albums simply by dragging them onto the app. The optimized photos retain the full quality and resolution of the original photos, but are much smaller in file size, so they can be shared much faster with friends and family via email or online services. Users can also choose to optimize their whole iPhoto library, or a complete internal or external drive, to free up valuable hard drive space.
"After 3 years of extensive research, and 19 patent applications, we are proud to bring our JPEGmini technology to the mass market with the introduction of JPEGmini for Mac," said Sharon Carmel, ICVT's Founder and CEO. "We look forward to empower users around the world with faster photo sharing, and more efficient use of local and online storage."
JPEGmini for Mac supports personal photos with a resolution of 2 to 17 Megapixels, and can be downloaded from the Mac App Store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/jpegmini/id498944723 .
