Allume Systems today released StuffIt Deluxe 10, the latest version of its data compression, access, and management tool for Mac OS X. This release includes the company’s patent pending JPEG compression technology, allowing users to compress JPEG images and photos up to 30% with no loss in image quality, according to the company. “The only previous solution available for those looking to reduce the size of JPEG images was to further reduce the quality of the image. StuffIt’s JPEG compression technology provides a new solution that offers smaller files without any penalty of reduced picture clarity. The product also allows users to view thumbnails for archived JPEG images without requiring them to decompress the archive.” StuffIt Deluxe 10 requires Mac OS 10.3 or later and is priced at US$79.99.
