THE ‘SAVE FOR WEB‘ BUTTON ADOBE SHOULD’VE MADE
We are happy to announce our latest product, the JPEGmini Photoshop® extension!
This extension is a welcome addition to our plug-in for Adobe® Lightroom®. Now when you export your photos directly from Photoshop or Lightroom, JPEGmini will automatically optimize them to the lowest file size possible without ever sacrificing quality. The resulting benefits will be faster uploading times, better UX and faster loading websites, thus improving Google search rank and customer satisfaction.
The idea of creating the Photoshop extension didn’t come out of thin air; rather it came from the JPEGmini community. We are so thrilled to have such a vibrant and vocal community that let us know how they are getting real value from using JPEGmini and what future product features they would like to see.
The one feature that our users requested the most was the Photoshop extension. Photographers and creatives alike know that a hi-res photo saved in Photoshop can be a rather large file. Since photo quality is very important, they didn’t want to have to compromise by using the “Save for Web” option. The save for web and export from Photoshop settings are part of a clunky and complicated process. We don’t just keep the original hi-res quality; we also make it super simple and fast to export images straight out of Photoshop. We heard the community loud and clear. We rolled up our sleeves, went to work and voila!
After working with both our Mac and Windows developers, we are very pleased with how the Photoshop Extension turned out. For those who use Photoshop, this will fit right into your workflow so you won’t have any extra steps to take when exporting your image. It’s as simple as clicking “Export With JPEGmini” when you are ready to export. Your exported image will remain hi-resolution, just with a much smaller file size.
We decided to send out the beta version to a few select individuals, and were very pleased with their responses.
“JPEGMini took another step out of what’s already an easy process of creating small JPEG files (without losing quality) by building an extension right into Photoshop. Thank you!” Kenny Kim, Owner Kenny Kim Photography.
“JPEGmini and I have been good friends, but since they came out with their Photoshop extension we have become blood brothers.” Gabor Richter, Owner of Gabor Richter Digital Artist.
Dustin Meyer took it one step further by creating a video of his review of the Photoshop Extension!

The initial response to our Photoshop extension was great. Now we want to hear from our community: How will you be using the Photoshop extension? Shoot us an email, Support@JPEGmini.com, and give us your feedback. We’re waiting to hear from you!
Yay! Thank you very much!
You’re quite welcome!
Lovely, but really really need the option to scale the image to a max-width too.
Right, we need to scale the output file to a specific px-size. And sRGB should be default too 😉
Have you tried the new Photoshop extension?
Not yet because: Downloaded the JPEGmini PRO Trial and installed. But no Photoshop-Export shows up … where is the plugin in the Trial version? PS CC 2015.1.2
I have version 1.9.8 (pro) but I don’t see the plug-in. Where can I download it? (Mac OS X)
We can help you out. Please send us an email to Support@JPEGmini.com.
I also have the pro version, downloaded the new Photoshop plug-in, installed it … and it doesn’t show up in Photoshop.
What’s worse, is that I have NOT received any support from customer support yet.
The JPEGmini Photoshop extension is compatible with Photoshop CC 2015.1
Photoshop CC 2015.1.2 here. The plugin doesn’t show up.
Finally I solve our common issue as following: when installing the JPEGmini plugin for Photoshop (CC 2015.1.2) specify the following folder path “C:Program Files (x86)Common FilesAdobeCEPextensions” (for Windows 10 x64) with the browse button. Then starting Photoshop, plugin appears under Windows/Extension… Hope it help !
Same issue as you. Waiting for support from jpegmini team on how to install the plugin for Photoshop. No instruction available on their website.
I have version 1.9.8 (pro) but I don’t see the plug-in. Where can I download it? Windows 10
Shoot us an email to Support@JPEGmini.com and we’ll help you out.
The take-away … users should be aware that although the app is compatible with the latest OS X system software, the plug-in is NOT backwards compatible with older versions of Photoshop … particularly those who stayed with their own bought and paid for version CS6 (version 13.06) rather than jumping onto the ‘renting scheme’ of’ Photoshop from Adobe?
A little disappointed, but somewhat predictable ‘business’ model.
Still, JPGEGmini Pro a good app. so some of us will just have to forget about the Photoshop plug-in hype.
Bbecause of the way the adobe API works – and the changes it has between each and every versions of Photshop. At the moment we don’t have plans to support older versions but because we’ve just launched the PS extension, we are waiting to hear feedback from our community and see how we continue with that.
please do consider supporting older ‘pre CC’ versions of PS. I’m one of the many who didn’t want to jump onto the cloud and still running CS5 which – by the way – is still plenty adequate to make a living on. BTW I just bought my own copy of JPEGmini PRO (it just saves me a lot of upload times and drive space) but would really enjoy being able to use the PS plugin and not having to go through the standalone app. Thanks!

thanks – well, here’s one feedback from me that you got on this matter 🙂
Really? No CS6 support? Please tell me I’m just missing an install step or something that simple…

I already have JPEGmini Pro. How do I order oder get this Extension?
OK, got it, you sent existing customers an E-Mail… 🙂
Glad it worked out! We’re here for you if you have any other questions – Support@JPEGmini.com
Thanks for featuring my JPEGmini Review on YouTube! You guys are the best 🙂
Dustin, thank YOU for creating such an awesome video! We’re honored.
I’m wondering how you are able to publish this blog post, stating a comparison to Photoshop’s “Save for Web” function, when there appears to be no option to select any compression level when “exporting” using JPEGMini. It’s a one click process, with no apparent settings/options. I certainly understand JPEGMini as a product for reducing file size without reducing quality, but how is this a replacement for “Save for Web”? Most web developers would definitely not use 100% quality on JPGs exported, so how is there any ability to compare? For example, I use “Save for Web” to save a JPG at 75% quality, it is 66kb. If I export as JPEGMini (again, there are no settings to choose from), and the resulting file is 80kb. Am I missing a hidden settings pane somewhere, or is this selling point disingenuous?
My thoughts exactly. I only discovered this after purchasing. I should have done more research I guess. As a tool to do loss-less jpeg file compression, it’s great. But as a replacement to all jpeg compression? I’m afraid not. I’m a web dev too and in 90% of cases, smaller file size is more important than image quality.
I guess I just assumed it wold out-do Photoshop’s abilities, but in fact it’s a more specific tool for specific uses.
In fact it is a more specific tool for specific uses and specific user..thanks
