IN the JPG squshing contest, 4eyes used a utility that was new to me -- the Pegasus JPG Wizard.

This software has one unique feature that earns it a place on my hard drive: if you open a previously compressed jpg just to flip it, it doesn't decompress then recompress like every other editor I know of (including the BIG ones).

This means that you can do simple manipulations right on the already compressed jpgs instead of returning to source materials, and not suffer degradation from double compression. That's sweet, and I hope Adobe is paying attention.

They don't have a Mac version available. :( I'd LOVE to try their PhotoShop plug-in, send them money, and evangelize their product to the moon and back, if I like it... but I can't tell if I do or not.

I hope Pegasus is paying attention. ;) Mac IS a major platform for graphics professionals, after all...

Curses - knew I should have negotiated a commision deal:)

Its a nice piece of software, and I couldn't get close to the same quality/size mix with any of my other tools. Simple version is free as well - what more could a squisher want? (apart from a Mac version)

Mivox,

You really need to become bilingual. No matter what anyones says, it feels good.

Bah... if I become bilingual, it will be Mac/Linux. No Windows. Not even for Pegasus. ;) I'll suffer the larger images, if I must.
