Hello

I'm slowly learning to use LR and it's a simply amazing program, I love it. Once I've massaged a photo to the point where I want to export it, I do so as a full size or as a 1920px image at 100% quality.

Every so often I'd like to post one to a forum or email it, so what I'm looking for are programs in the freeware and or open source category similar to JPEGmini. I know that I can accomplish this during the file export or with an image editor (PSP or Paint.NET) after the fact. I would however like to try a variety of programs as I start to assemble a software toolbox of sorts.

Thanks for any help you offer.

If you're saving at 100% quality in Lightroom, try exporting at a lower percentage.

Use the LR export dialog -- you can limit pixel size, file size, and quality to just about any amount you want.

If you're using a Canon camera, you could try the ZoomBrowser/ImageBrows​er software...

LR has all of the options you need to export nice quality small images for email or forum use.

I myself would and do stick with LR but the OP specifically is looking for other options, so...

If you are running on a windows pc, there is a built in image resizer plug in you can check out: http://imageresizer.co​deplex.com/ (external link) It's a very basic program but it works quite well

Windows has a built in program called "PAINT" that will efficiently reduce jpegs.
Edit: sorry about this, have a bad habit of just replying without reading through the thread, not good. Yes in LR you have the option of reducing jpegs when you EXPORT is correct. :)
