JPEGmini, a new utility.

A facility has been recently announced that claims to ". . . radically reduce the size of a photograph . . ." (I assume a JPG)

A quote from the authors: "We take an image, make it five times smaller, but always guarantee that the JPEGmini image looks exactly like the original."

Here is a screen grab of a small portion of a 100% crop of a D800 image, JPG High, 1,547,093 bytes, on the right, and the JPEGmini image, 1,174,900 bytes, extracted from the first, on the left. I can't tell much of a difference. Can you?

Certainly not 5:1 in this example, but a 24% reduction in size. Useful, I guess, for web pages where load time is critical.
