JPG Cleaner is a tiny and portable software application that enables you to get rid of all unnecessary data from JPG files in the attempt to free up significant space occupied on limited-sized disks, such as memory cards or pen drives. It includes intuitive options that can be easily figured out by users, regardless of their experience with image processing utilities.
Since there is no setup pack involved, you can put the program files in any part of the hard disk and just click the executable to run.
Another option is to save JPG Cleaner to a USB flash disk or upload it online to access it from any computer without any previous installations.
What's more, the fact that it's portable means that it does not modify Windows registry entries, nor create extra files on the disk without your consent, thus leaving no traces behind after its removal.
JPG Cleaner does not put too much emphasis on looks. However, the interface is very simple to navigate. JPG files can be added to the task list using the file browser, folder view or drag-and-drop method. Batch processing is supported, so you can work with multiple photos at once to reduce the workload.
Easily configure output settings
It is possible to preview each photo and specify the output directory for saving the new files. Otherwise, JPG Cleaner can be set to overwrite the existing files. It may also create backups in case something goes wrong, keep the original file date and time, beep on task completion, as well as ignore or delete corrupt files, or delete the unknown ones. Settings can be saved for future runs.
