This tutorial shows the man page for man jpegoptim in linux.
Open terminal with 'su' access and type the command as shown below:
Result of the Command Execution shown below:
jpegoptim utility to optimize/compress JPEG/JFIF files.
jpegoptim [ options ] [ filenames ]
jpegoptim is used to optimize/compress jpeg files. Program supports lossless optimization, which is based on optimizing the Huffman tables. And so called
"lossy" optimization where in addition to optimizing Huffman tables user can specify upperlimit for image quality.
Options may be either the traditional POSIX one letter options, or the GNU style long options. POSIX style options start with a single `` '', while GNU long
options start with `` ''.
Options offered by jpegoptim are the following:
Sets alternative destination directory where to save optimized files (default is to overwrite the originals). Please note that unchanged files won't be
added to the destination directory. This means if the source file can't be compressed, no file will be created in the destination path.
Force optimization, even if the result would be larger than the original file.
Displays short usage information and exits.
Sets the maximum image quality factor (disables lossless optimization mode, which is by default enabled). This option will reduce quality of those
source files that were saved using higher quality setting. While files that already have lower quality setting will be compressed using the lossless
Don't really optimize files, just print results.
Overwrite target file even if it exists (when using d option).
Preserve file modification times.
Print totals after processing all files.
Enables verbose mode (positively chatty).
Strip all (Comment & Exif) markers from output file. (NOTE! by default only Comment & Exif markers are kept, everything else is discarded)
Strip Comment (COM) markers from output file.
Strip EXIF markers from output file.
When optimizing progressive jpeg, result will be a normal jpeg.
