One thing that I love about Mini-Compressor Monday is looking through our expansive photo archive for ‘just the right’ photos to share. Today’s medley features trees and greenery from Christmas present and past. And let me tell ya how quickly nostalgia sets in for those of us with young children!
Total album size: 20.5 MB
Cameras: vary from Canon EOS 20D to Konica Minolta DiMAGE G530 to Konica Minolta DiMAGE X50 to iPhone 4S*
Even by using a Compression Index of 90, the total album size was a manageable 13.4 MB with very little quality loss.
The largest pictures were the ones taken in 2006 by a photographer friend. She used her Canon, which produced awesome results, but translated to huge file sizes. To reduce the file sizes for sharing (you know, grandparents and cousin…), I bumped the compression index down to 90 and 80. You can still see the pudginess of that little girl’s wrists and the little boo-boo on her left wrist. For the stuffies shot, you can still see the individual furs on that penguins earmuffs. What more could you want for festive pictures?
Don’t believe me? Here they are side-by-side:
We hope you’re in the spirit wherever you are! And sharing lots of photos! ‘Tis the season!
* Speaking of cameras past… we’ve sure gone through quite a few over the years!
