Blubox, the award winning image compression utility for Windows, is a powerful and easy-to-use software application that lets you quickly compress and decompress your digital photos so they can be emailed, uploaded and stored easily and safely. Blubox uses state of the art image compression algorithms to encode and store your photos in an efficient Blubox archive file - similar to zipping but with image compression support for over 60 image file formats, including JPEG, BMP, TIFF and PNG.
Blubox detects the type of file being imported and automatically applies the optimum compression technique. Your photos can be compressed by as much as 95% without altering the pixel count or sacrificing picture quality. Email upload and download times can be drastically reduced - you can email an entire album in the time it would usually take to send just a couple of pictures! Up to 10x more, full resolution pictures, can be stored on your hard drive and memory card.
Blubox comes with a built-in image viewer, so there is no need to extract to view thumbnails or full screen images. Stored images can be decoded at any time and returned to their original format, at the touch of a button, for use in other programs.
Blubox protects your files using 256-bit, industry strength encryption, making it virtually impossible for anyone to access your private data without your express permission. Simply drag and drop your photos into Blubox and, in seconds, your data will be secure and protected. The free Blubox viewer means that you can share your Blubox archives with friends and family allowing them to view, print and extract your pictures.
Make sure your private and personal digital photos are protected both before and while you share them by email or FTP or store them on your hard drive and memory cards. Blubox provides you with your own desktop digital vault in which to securely store all your precious files and photographs.
