Re: Does Zipping a file....

I am thinking about Zipping all my photos down, to fit them on one cd, can this work with destroying the integrity of the photos?

Thanks, Jay

No... but zipping already compressed (JPG) files won't save you much space. Spend the extra $0.05 on another CD

What he said. It won't matter much, unless you want to create multiple archives, but even then you'll need multiple CD's if you have that many pictures

Ok, smart a$$es,
It may not save much space, but it was going to save me just enough to fit the 800mgs onto a 700mg disk.
So ha!

Usually you might get 1-2% max compression out of a JPG file, and you're suggesting a 15% compression ratio. Most interesting

Re: Does Zipping a file....

though your files may take up a certain amount of hard drive space, depending on file size, they MAY occupy less space on the CDROM.

Your original question about 'damage' may be attributed to two different types of compression schemes, 'Lossy' and 'loss-less'. Zip programs are usually loss-less so the original data is maintained. The JPEG compression used to write the file originaly uses lossy compression. Some of the information is lost in the process of saving the image.

Luck favors those who are prepared.
