[Feature Request] option to optimize pictures #2353
I dont see any side effects. I still can view them everywhere (Lin, Win, Android), can edit them.
So if there are some downsides, I cant find them.
++thanks for the link to the project!
That was my question, and you are right it could fit in there. If we do jpeg optimization we should also do png optimization. Two more thoughts on this
And we probably would need multiple binaries for different image formats.
Then we would need to make clear that the operation could take a long time and use a lot of battery.
Then it would need a failsave for files that have the wrong extension or magic header.
Then we can't really tell if an image is already optimised or needs optimisation. So we would rerun the operation on the same file a lot.
Then I don't take many pictures but I already have 2.9 GB pics and 1.2 GB videos alone in my DCIM/Camera folder.
So maybe a new app would be necessary as this sounds a bit out of scope for as maid.
I did a quick search and this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.teknoraver.imageoptimizer does that and the are potentially a lot more. I didn't try any but I see one that looks to promising.
