WinZip® is the most trusted way to work with compressed files.
No other compression utility is as easy-to-use or offers the comprehensive and productivity-enhancing approach that has made WinZip the gold standard for file-compression tools. With the new WinZip 12, you can quickly and securely zip and unzip files to conserve storage space, speed up e-mail transmission, and reduce download times. State-of-the-art file compression, strong AES encryption, compatibility with more compression formats, and new intuitive photo compression, make WinZip 12 the complete compression and archiving solution. Building on the favorite features of a worldwide base of several million users, WinZip 12 adds new features for image compression and management, support for new compression methods, improved compression performance, support for additional archive formats, and more. Users can work faster, smarter, and safer.
WinZip will now compress your JPEG files (digital photos or graphic images) by 20 to 25% and still without any loss of photo quality or data integrity. Now you can send photos faster or fit more on your hard drive and removable media than ever before.
The new time-saving Zip from Camera Wizard in WinZip Pro makes it easy to transfer photos from your digital camera and compress them in a Zip file. New users can walk through the process step-by-step while experienced users may prefer the streamlined, one-step approach. When zipping from cameras that support orientation tags, WinZip even ”auto-rotates” your photos before compressing them so they are correctly oriented in the Zip file.
Once your photos are transferred from your camera, use WinZip’s Explorer view to see thumbnails of each photo. This makes it easy to give your photos meaningful names or delete those that you don’t want to keep. You can even create folders in the Zip file and then drag and drop photos into them to better organize your collection. WinZip Pro offers a full-sized image viewer to view slide shows, rotate, resize, or delete photos all without ever unzipping them.
Now with WinZip’s enhanced Send feature, it is simple to share your photos directly from WinZip. A Zip file is a convenient way to package photos and other files before sending them. Not only can related files be put in one package, but WinZip’s compression reduces the space and transfer time they require. When working in a Zip file, the new Send Selected Files feature makes it easy to share any selected files (not just photos) as a new Zip file that can be sent by email or, when using WinZip Pro, uploaded to FTP. When selecting and sending photos, you can automatically resize them for faster delivery while leaving your original photos unchanged.
Content sensitive Smart View makes it easier to see the contents of your Zip file. Simply open a Zip file and WinZip will choose a viewing method best suited for the contents of your Zip file. If your Zip file contains photos or images, WinZip will display the files in Thumbnail View so you can quickly browse your images. If your Zip file contains folders, the Explorer-style tree view is used so you can easily navigate folders and see their contents. The familiar Classic view is used when there are no folders or images.
Now, with the addition of WinZip’s new Jpeg and LZMA compression methods to the existing PPMd, bzip2, Enhanced Deflate and WAVPack methods, WinZip offers improved compression performance for most file types. The enhanced Properties dialog now displays a report that shows graphically how much space you saved by compressing the files. It also provides you with other useful information such as the number of files in your archive, the percentage of compression, and whether your files are encrypted or not.
