Editors' review

True to its name, this utility takes photo compression very seriously. On the plus side, Advanced JPEG Compressor supports a wide range of image formats and packs a number of features for fine-tuning compression, even when working with large batches of shots. The downside to this extensive level of control is a crowded, chaotic interface that may scare off newcomers. The program lets you set compression ratio and levels, and offers handy sliders for equalizing the detail quality. Folks who really want to get detailed will appreciate the abilities to tweak sharpness, luma equalization, smoothness, brightness, and color balance. In addition to the rotation feature, you'll find a tool that lets you add a watermark, with the ability to adjust its font, placement, and opacity. In our tests, this program quickly shrunk our images without a noticeable loss in quality, even when we took a closer look with the powerful zoom tool. However, since the demo version won't let you save compressed shots, some users may not find it as handy as similar, less-restrictive programs. Still, seasoned shutterbugs who need to save space without sacrificing quality likely will get a lot out of Advanced JPEG Compressor.

    "Batch mode works fine and this does a good job"

    March 21, 2013   |   By JimSocal

    Version: Advanced JPEG Compressor 2012

    Pros

    I've been using AJC for years and though I admit it's got a kind of klunky GUI, it works great once you get the hang of it. Are there easier jpg compressors to use? No doubt there are. But this one does a lot, and once you figure it out it does it quickly and efficiently.

    With Batch mode you can create your own templates of how much you want to compress and what size you want to resize the jpg to (actual size, I mean, here, not file size) and then push a button and you have the whole batch done to your specs.

    Cons

    GUI is a little hard to understand in some cases.

    Summary

    I like Advance JPEG Compressor Batching works fine. The GUI could be better but it's not terrible.
    Try it and if you can figure out the GUI then buy it.

    "batch mode not much use"

    June 09, 2012   |   By MothTwiceborn

    Version: Advanced JPEG Compressor 2012

    Pros

    It seems to compress pretty well

    Cons

    Batch mode won't work on nested folder groups. You have to select all the pictures in each individual folder.

    Summary

    Since batch mode was what I wanted it for, the software wasn't much use to me.
