Winter Wonderland

Don’t see much snow these days in Miami, so here’s a photo I took with my old film camera in Wichita many years ago.

94th Aero Squadron

In Miami, next to the airport. Nice little Cuban bar and restaurant. In the main dinning room , they have headphones at the tables and you can listen live to the air traffic controllers in the tower.

JPEG Mimi

To my photographers friends. I used to keep all my photos in Raw and jpg both. Then, as it kept growing, I converted all my raw to dng, which saved about 20% space and stopped keeping the jpg. Then, as my collection grew even more, I started keeping only the jpg, and keeping the raw of any photos that I wanted to do post processing on, low light, etc. But still, my Lightroom photo file was over 600 GB, and my laptop was getting close to capacity. Quite by accident I ran across JPEGmini on line. All the reviews said it significantly reduced the size of your jpg files with no loss in detail. I ran tests by copying files, and then running one copy thru JPEGmini. Zooming in, I could not find any difference between the two files in loss of detail. I then processed all of the jpg files in my collection, and recovered 90 GB of space back. That’s right, GB, not MB. A significant savings. It only works on jpg files, so if you only keep raw, then it won’t do anything for you. But definitely worth checking out if you have a substantial number of jpg files and are worried about storage capacity.
