Why You should rotate your Jpeg photos losslessy

JPEG is argumentatively the most popular image formats uses for digital photography. It is so because compression they use which results in an impressive reduction of file size which makes it appropriate where size matters particularly where storage media is costly or small like in the case of digital cameras and for the use on the internet where bandwidth may be slow or costly. Now that we are in the age where speed is everything, waiting too long for a web page to download because of huge image may cause your visitors to move away to somewhere else.

Of course now, professional digital cameras do offer saving photos in the RAW format but that would result in about 10x the space needed to store a typical jpeg photo. RAW format has its purpose where quality is everything.

Using Resizing Options in our Batch Image Processors

One of the most used features in our Batch Image Processors is the Batch Resizing function and instead of providing you one way to resize an image, we provide you with more than 4 ways to do it on our Mac application and more than 6 ways on our Windows applications.

Page Ranges Support in our Mac Apps

We are progressively adding support for Page Ranges support to our existing Mac Apps wherever practical. The Page Ranges support will enable you the ability to determine how the pages in your TIFF and PDF files will be arranged.

In the past month, we have added supported for Page Ranges in

  1. CM PDF & TIFF Page Extractor
  2. CM ComboTIFF
  3. CM PDF Merge NX

We hope that this new feature will enable you to perform your work even more efficiently.

Do let us know what features you like to see in our applications and we will do our best to include them in future updates.

 

Maintaining Multiple Configurations for Multiple Usages

Most of our applications offers you with a wide variety of setting options to cater to different needs. If you need to apply the same settings day in and day out, it would work fine as it is. However, when you need to deal with multiple clients which has different needs and preferences or even performing different task, it can be cumbersome to have to make all these changes over and over again.

This issue of allowing you as a user to use multiple configurations and having to switch between them with ease was one of the fundamental strength of our batch imaging, tiff and pdf solutions for the Windows platform. To solve this issue, we implemented the concept of Settings Profile early in our product life cycle.

Page Ranges

One of the key features we are implementing across the board for our TIFF and PDF applications is “Page Ranges”.

Page Ranges is a simple concept but it provides a rather powerful feature in enabling you as a user to determine how you want to rearrange your pages within a document, be it a PDF file or a TIFF file. This means that you can use Page Ranges to determine which pages you want to include and which pages you want to exclude. Not only that, it also means that you can now determine the sort order of the pages. This feature is certainly useful if a certain document needs to be reorganized.
