TEL AVIV, Israel and NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Customers of B&H Photo Video, the world-renowned photo, video and pro audio reseller, can reduce the file size of their photos and free up precious computer hard drive space when they purchase JPEGmini for Mac, an innovative media optimization app from ICVT Ltd. that reduces the file size of photos by up to five times, with no loss of quality and resolution.  JPEGmini for Mac is available for download on the B&H online store at: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/906198-REG/JPEGmini_icvt_jpegmini_mac_r1_JPEGmini_Software_for_Mac.html.

Highly-acclaimed for its ability to reduce file sizes of JPEG photos by up to 80 percent, JPEGmini preserves image quality and resolution while maintaining the standard JPEG format.  More than 50 million photos have been optimized to date using JPEGmini for Mac, and the recently released 28 megapixel upgraded version can optimize photos shot with 99 percent of the camera models available on the market today.  JPEGmini carries a suggested retail price of $19.99.

"B&H Photo is committed to providing the best industry gear to the digital community," said B&H Photo Video Director of Communications Henry Posner. "As the resolution of both point-and-shoot consumer and DSLR cameras continues to expand, JPEGmini offers an easy, cost-effective way to free up valuable storage space without sacrificing quality.  JPEGmini has a stellar reputation in the digital imaging community and we look forward to sharing its benefits with our customers."

"Widely revered as the professional's source, B&H prides itself on providing customers with expert photo and video equipment knowledge and we are pleased to have JPEGmini in its lineup of innovative products," said Eli Lubitch, president of ICVT.  "With its sophisticated media compression technology and support of up to 28 megapixels, JPEGmini is the ideal app for the B&H photo devotee."

With JPEGmini for Mac users can quickly optimize full photo albums simply by dragging them onto the app.  The optimized photos retain the full quality and resolution of the original photos, but are much smaller in file size, so they can be shared markedly faster with friends and family via email or online services. Users can also choose to optimize their entire iPhoto library, or a complete internal or external drive, to free up valuable hard drive space.  JPEGmini technology imitates the perceptual qualities of the human visual system, ensuring each photo is compressed to the maximum extent possible by removing redundancies, without creating any visual artifacts in the process.
