Available exclusively as an electronic download here from leading photo and video industry retailer B&H, and based on patented media optimization technology from emerging technology innovator Beamr, JPEGmini for Windows reduces the file size of photos by up to five times, while preserving quality and resolution. 

"Photographers regard JPEGmini as an indispensable optimization tool for storing, editing and sharing photos, but it also enables Web developers to reduce load times for image-intensive web pages, translating to lower storage and bandwidth costs," said B&H Photo Video Director of Communications Henry Posner.  "Feedback from customers already utilizing JPEGmini for Mac has been positive and we are pleased to bring this technology to our customers using Windows as well."

With JPEGmini for Windows users can easily optimize extensive photo albums with a variety of files simply by dragging them onto the app. JPEGmini technology optimizes photos while retaining full resolution and original quality, but the resulting files are significantly smaller in size, enabling significant storage savings and markedly faster sharing. 

JPEGmini for Windows allows users to free up valuable hard drive space on their laptops, an essential feature for expensive, capacity-constrained SSD drives and any internal or external hard drive.  After JPEGmini optimization, users can attach dozens of full resolution photos to email messages, store up to five times more photos on their online photo services and archive and back up large photo collections faster.

"More than 100 million photos have been optimized to date by JPEGmini users seeking to maintain quality while scaling back valuable storage space," said Eli Lubitch, president of Beamr.  "Our expansion to Windows and partnership with B&H, the world's leading retailer of professional photo and video products, allows us to accommodate the entire spectrum of photo and media workflow from photo capture, editing and storage to online publishing"
