MM – Holiday Cheer

Our dear friend Brad at has kindly loaned us some holiday cheer to share for our final Mini-Compressor Monday of 2013.  DD will have 2 weeks off from school and we fully intend to enjoy some family time, and take in all the celebrations that come our way.

It looks here that Brad and his crew enjoyed some family time earlier this month: here are 12 lovely shots taken at the Edmonton Festival of Trees*.

Total album size = 25.6 MB**

Camera: Canon PowerShot ELPH 330 HS

To compress all the photos, I simply right-clicked on the folder containing them and chose “Mini-Compressor” from the menu.  It compressed the whole folder in a matter of seconds.  And as I always sing, there is very little quality-loss with the compression.  I chose an index of 90.  Look and see if you can tell the full-sized “Can You See What I See? robot” side-by-side with the compressed versions.  For fun, I threw in one compressed with an index of 80.

That’s like “light” cream cheese, or “light” eggnog!  Enjoy the festivities without all the calories!

All of us here in the Saturday MP basement want to send you some warm and happy holiday wishes!  Thank you for spending 2013 with us and we’ll see you in 2014.

*I took DD one year – I think she was still in a stroller those days and if she wasn’t, she was still pretty little.  Ah, the memories.

**Brad sent the pics my way via Dropbox, rather than email.  That was pretty simple (I’ve used it before and I have an account).
