Zip files on a mac

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to make a zip file smaller? I have a lot of photos from europe and need to send them in an e-mail.

You won't be able to compress them much more. Either resize all the pics or just put them on a dvd and mail it.

polishmike is right - reduce via image optimisation rather than any zipping utility.

try picasa for online galleries - download the iPhoto plugin and the utility optimises for web and uploads straight away - neato

bzip2 and gzip.

and yeah, compress with jpeg instead of file base compression, works better as it is optimized for image vs. generic files (vs huffman coding and lz77 for gzip and a couple layer stacks for bzip2)
