John Anderson Posted May 2, 2013 Report Share Posted May 2, 2013 Hi, I'm not sure how many people realize 'jpeg' compression for any arbitary quality setting depends on the manufacturer of the camera or the conversion software used. The information that tells the software how to compress an image is contained in quantization tables, which are inaccessible to the end-user. We've discovered (not entirely to our surprise) we can obtain equally good images from our 10MP Olympus E-3 as from our 21MP Canon 5D2 after conversion from RAW to jpeg via Adobe Camera RAW. I know it's a tall order, but does anyone know of a standalone converter which allows fully-variable compression? We're trying to get the best image quality possible to preserve detail. Regards, John Anderson. PS I might add I wasn't quite sure where to post this. Hope it's OK to put it here! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
