ProJPEG 4.0 Adds Compression Control

ProJPEG 4.0 Adds Compression Control -- BoxTop Software has released ProJPEG 4.0, a Photoshop plug-in for saving optimized JPEG images. Like BoxTop's PhotoGIF (see "Crunch GIFs Quickly with PhotoGIF" in TidBITS-479), ProJPEG's image compression outperforms Photoshop's built-in filters, creating smaller files for the Web. Version 4.0 adds a Target feature, makes ProJPEG calculate the amount of compression required to meet a file size of your choosing. You can also apply different settings to areas of the image marked as foreground and background (enabling you to apply more compression to a photo's landscape and less to objects in the foreground, for example). ProJPEG 4.0 is a 580K download and costs $50; owners of any previous version of ProJPEG can upgrade for $20. [JLC]
