    [@pepe] [@Frank D] [@Trust Later] Thank you for pointing out that comment. Trust Later is right, I don’t like to censor comments. However, I make an exception for comments that share keys. I’ve not removed the whole comment but I’ve removed the key. Thank you for looking out for SOS!

    @Ashraf: I think it is in our own best interest (let alone yours and Balesio’s) to fight such a blatant way of using the comment section of giveaway websites to spread cracked(?)/genuine(?) registration keys and info. Why? ‘Cause I for one would love to see more high quality software like this one being given away here for free in the future… please do not scare developers away by keeping a blind eye on such comments. If one purchases, downloads and installs a soft (free or discounted) one then agrees to ULA of said program and can’t/mustn’t share received registration details with others. Am I right? I am not working for Balesio or any other developer. I simply appreciate and respect the giveaway offers and would like to see more great softs on offer here.

    [@pepe] I completely agree. Anybody with half a brain would know that publicly posting license keys info undermines the developer’s rights as well as the reputation of SharewareOnSale. There are correct and honest ways to recover lost keys/licenses.

    While I applaud Ashraf’s extreme reluctance to censor comments, I strongly suggest and request that he delete G. Vadim’s comment.

    [@Frank D] I guess that this was a main purpose of that Russian comment… wasn’t it posted simply to share the working serial number and license details under the false pretense and after the giveaway expired? Makes you think again about the reasons behind the whole ‘Digiarty-free-lifetime-license-key-expiration-gate’ described here on S.o.S. in detail by @Ashraf not that long ago…

    Well, I can’t attest to the whole document, but I compared the original Word document side-by-side against the printed PDF of the one that was reduced in size (compressed) by FileMinimizer Office by 78.8%, and I can’t detect any dropouts or loss of quality in either the text or the images. I’m no expert, but I’d say that’s more than good enough for my purposes.

    I’ve been using, and recommending, Balesio’s FileMinimizer Pictures for years — in fact, ever since it came out in or around 2007. This German developer primarily operates in the corporate / business sector, so FileMinimzer Pictures was commercial software sold at a commercial price (I can’t now remember what I paid, but it wasn’t cheap.) I spend a lot of time, working with digital imagery, so paying for something as good as that was no big deal. It was though, for others who are hobbyists. They loved the idea of a program whose algorithmic ingenuity had to be seen to be believed, but they couldn’t afford the asking price — or rather, they couldn’t until around four or so years ago, when Balesio generously offered this image compression software free of charge to domestic users. Nowadays, I doubt there’s any camera owning email contact in my address book that *doesn’t* have it because I’ve repeatedly (though politely) reminded friends not to keep emaiing 4Mb out-of-camera shots of wot-we-did-on-holiday / at-Christmas / when-daughter-got-married, but instead to use the image file compressor to email me six excellent on-screen quality shots for the transmission time / bandwidth of one, or 12 for the overhead of 2.

    There’s absolutely no point in me getting into any argument or debate here about Fileminimizer Pictures’ merits because (a) I know it from back to front and (b) have compressed not hundreds but thousands of images with it over the years according to circumstance and preference — and not once as it ever let me down.

    That I no longer use this freeware as a stand-alone is because I have the Balesio full suite instead, which does for documents what it does for images (though yes, the suite does images, too.) What used to happen was that I would laboriously optimize images for incorporation into Word docs which were then pdf’d via Bullzip, this to reduce the overall file size. Thanks to Balesio, those days are long gone: I can slam original out of camera images into a Word doc, run Bullzip for high quality 300dpi print out, and then use the Balesio suite to compress the whole document. Result? Well, the thing is. . . recipients of such pdf files don’t have the opportunity to compare ‘em with the originals. But if they did, they’d rarely, if ever, spot the difference — this despite the fact that Balesio’s alogorithms succeed in chucking out a veritable tonnage of metadata yet without any visual impairment at all.

    So-oo. . . all I will say is that everything that Trust Later has already written here is 100% correct. (And no, I don’t work for Balesio, nor have any connectioin with it in any way. I’m pretty sure Trust Later has no connection, either.)

    To sum up then: regulars here will know how I’ve railed against the smiley program rating facility on SoS for being very often as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Today’s laughable 58% approval rating bears that out, it being the work of button pushers who’ve never downloaded this program, know nowt about Balesio, and probably can’t even spell ‘compression’. By contrast, the software offered today is massively intelligent, massively competent, and on a smiley program rating scale ought to be getting 110% approval, never mind 100%.

    This is quality, pure and not-so-simple. And if you can’t afford the bargain-basement SoS offer on the Suite, then just go ahead and take advantage of Balesio’s generosity with this Office version. . . and download the always free (for private use only) fileminimizerpictures from Balesio’s website. Magic gets no better’n this.

    I’ve got all three of them: FM Pictures, FM Suite, and FM Office. I’m using them with all my pictures (JPGs) and Office files. Balesio’s technology is certainly unique.

    I like the Suite because it integrates nicely into Office programs, the Windows Context Menu and is there for PDF’s. And, for today’s ten dollars, you can’t beat it. If you know for SURE you will never need those functionalities, they offer a free image-only minimizer:

    On the side note, few times when I tried to shrink .gif files using FILEminimizer Suite, no matter what compression settings I chose it wouldn’t do the job? Well, not exactly – it did the job, sort of, by minimizing these ‘gifs images to literally 0 (zero) Bites! Only reason for that that I can think of is that the original ‘gifs size was too small to even process in FILEminimizer, but I’m not sure about that… It’s a pity as the original .gifs were still too big to upload to tumblr blog. Could one of those wizards from Balessio know the reason behind this problem?

    Hi all, I am using FILEminimizer Suite 7.0 which I got for FREE here on S.o.S. some time ago and I can confirm what @Trust Later is saying below about this gem-of-a-programme. Whomever they employ at Balessio (magicians, alchemists or else) their software do a brilliant job, at least regarding minimizing the image file’s size. I’m using “Visually Lossless” settings to shrink .jpeg photographs before uploading them to my portfolio website. Thanks to exceptional job that FILEminimizer Suite does I am able to decrease the website’s loading time by approx. 60% without visually noticeable differences of final .jpeg files! It is quite difficult to notice any loss in image quality even while comparing both – original and minimized – photographs side by side, let alone looking at the latter alone. So I too would strongly suggest getting the Suite at the discounted price. Well worth having. Great soft. Thanks Balessio and S.o.S.!

    [@Frank D] Please be WARNED: I am an amateur/user, not a programmer/developer. That said, the lossier the image format, the better FILEminimizer does; i.e., for example, savings with jpeg’s it excels; with png’s it does little; with tiff’s it does nothing. If you allow it to change formats, of course, the foregoing doesn’t apply, as FILEminimizer automatically will choose that image format that results in the smallest file size.

    In looking at small (< 1.0MB) text-only doc/docx files, I have seen no file-size savings and no change in quality.

    FILEminimizED, large doc/docx files with text + images, to me, look exactly like the originals text/formatting-wise. However, I CAN discern a very slight reduction in image quality (tonal range, density of shadows, palette….) but the images are all there, properly arranged and formatted. How Balesio does it is beyond me. I think they employ alchemists & wizards as well as mathematicians, programmers and perceptual psychologists.

    [@Trust Later] I see, when hovering over the question marks (?) at the bottom of each compression level’s description, that they refer to the *visual* and *printed* display as being OK in Visually Lossless, but they don’t comment on the *printed* output in Visually Lossless Display. Without some verification, how can I be sure that the visually good-looking output will not be garbled somehow in the printed output. One practical way to test that would be to print the document to a PDF file. I’ll give that a try and see what the outcome is.

    [@Trust Later] Well, I AM blown away! The original file size of 78.79 MB was reduced to 16.46 MB, a reduction in size of 78.8%.

    My questions are: (1) how confident can I be that the contents of the file (767 pages with many images) are all intact, with no “dropouts”? (2) how is this “magic” done (in broad, non-trade secrets terms) so that it doesn’t affect the integrity of the document? (3) if Balesio can do this why can’t Microsoft?

    I find it hard to believe that all this condensation/compression takes place only on the document’s “white space” or in only the pictures. Although, on the other hand, if all the text and pictures are still there in readable form, what difference does it make?

    Reply to this comment#6

    [@Frank D] Nice! Now, if you REALLY want to be blown away, try the “Visually Lossless Display” setting that results in a file size 1/4 the original and [to my advanced amateur photographer's eye, anyway :-) ] looks 90% as good as the original.

    Reply to this comment#5

    [@Trust Later] Well, shame on me! I checked the file, and found that it contained all inserted *pictures*, no text. That’s what happens when you choose a file at random and don’t check its contents.

    So I reinstalled FileMinimizer Office, chose a doc file 78. 79 MB in size, and re-ran the test, using the Visually lossless setting. The reduction in size was 15.7%, to 65.63 MB.

    So, yes, I can now say the program works as advertised, and it’s a keeper.

    [@Frank D] Hi there! I’m curious: At that size, I doubt it was a text-only .doc file, right? What compression settings did you choose? FWIW, after reading your comment, I ran an old 23.3MB .doc file (WITH several images embedded) and got a 31% reduction in size.

    I tried it on a 23 MB typical doc file, but it did nothing — zero! No explanation. Uninstalled.

    Very useful software that really does do what it promises. I strongly suggest getting the Suite at the deeply discounted price. The image processing feature alone is worth the price and resulting, minimized outputs are nearly indistinguishable (using standard compression) from the originals but at 1/3 the file size. Really!
