JPEGmini Lite

JPEGmini, by Beamer, is a good image utility to compress images without losing the quality of the image. Simple drag and drop the image, and you don't have to worry about settings or seeing if the image looks good. JPEGmini makes sure that the image looks the best as possible.

Tested Again other Mac Tools

I did a comparison with some other Macintosh tools and found that JPEGmini offered better compression without any loss of photo quality.

Photo comparison using a photo taken with my iPhone Xs:

Original Image 2.8 MB
JPEGmini 2.1 MB24%
Photo Size Optimizer 2.8 MB0%
PhotoBulk 2.6 MB8%

File Size Info JPEG

JPEGmini Website

I was able to compress the same image much better on the JPEGMini website. The same image was compressed to 1.9 MB a savings of 47%

ShortPixel Did Better

ShortPixel compression was much better. ShortPixel was able to reduce the image by 90% to 598 KB.

Overall

JPEGmini is a cool Macintosh tool to compress images, but ShortPixel seems to be the better value when compressing images.

JPEGmini is available in a Lite and Regular version. The lite version lets you compress 20 images a day. The regular version is $28.99 for an unlimited number of image compression. If your looking for a computer specific version this seems to be a better option.

ShortPixel offers 100 images a month for free, or various monthly plans starting at $5.
