Editors' Review

by   / August 24, 2009

Image Compressor 2008 lets users shrink large images' file size without compromising quality. In addition, this simple program provides other image-altering tools to make a complete package.

Image Compressor 2008's interface features a crowded collection of command icons and a few smaller windows showcasing image details. Luckily, the program first offers a fantastic walk-through tutorial. In addition, users can consult an excellent Help file. Compressing files was surprisingly simple and involves selecting a photo, clicking on the Compression icon and choosing a destination. The file (or files if you choose Batch Compression) is compressed in a matter of seconds. The new statistics are showcased in a screen on the right. This was a great option, but the program really began to shine when we discovered its other options. Its Image Compare tool was useful in seeing all the statistical details of photos, but its Retouching option was the best. Here, users have access to several tools to adjust color, size, and more with a few simple mouse clicks. Image Compressor's entire package was simple and fast. The most interesting feature was the program's capability to take screen captures, with only a few clicks of the mouse.

The program does place a watermark on the image during the trial. However, Image Compressor 2008 performs its primary duty well and provides many extras. It's a great choice for home photo editors.
