JPEGmini is a great utility for making your images smaller so they take up less space on your computer or for transmission online, all the while ensuring no quality is lost.

I started using JPEGmini a couple of years ago and have recently upgraded to JPEGmini Pro because my newer camera, the Canon 5DsR, has a 50 megapixel sensor and JPEGmini (non-pro version) has an upper limit of 50 megapixels. 

The folks who make JPEGmini are adamant that this reduction does nothing to affect the quality of the image and that the resulting file can still be used for printing, after all, it has done nothing to affect the pixels that make up the image. What JPEGmini does is removes a lot of "junk" data from the file, reducing the file size, often my more than 50%.
