    How to Zip and Unzip Files with Peazip?


    Follow this steps.
    1.PeaZip is a freeware cross-platform archive
    manager that provides a single GUI for Open
    Source technologies ( 7-Zip , FreeArc, PAQ,
    UPX. ..) on Windows, Linux, and BSD. The file
    manager allows both to select files and
    folders to be archived as Zip files (or other
    formats), and to select archives to be
    unzipped. Alternatively, file selection can be
    performed with PeaZip system's context
    menu entries (not featured in PeaZip Portable
    version) or simply dragging and dropping files
    from / to the program.
    2.Archive creation can be started dragging files
    on the application, or with "Add" button in
    program's tool bar. The archive creation
    interface prompts by default creation of a Zip
    file, but the file format can be customized, as
    well as compression ratio (from faster to
    better) and other miscellaneous options,
    including encryption. PeaZip relies on
    optimized Deflate algorithm for compressing
    in Zip format, that usually compress 5-10%
    better than standard Deflate but keeping
    compatibility with other Zip utilities. 7Z
    format gives better compression ratio, but is
    slower than Zip. As quite unique feature for
    archive management software, PeaZip
    supports two factor authentication (password
    plus key file), random password generation,
    and features an integrated encrypted
    password manager. "Advanced" tab features
    more fine-grained options, "Console" tab
    transform the task in a command line i.e. for
    use in scripts or for study purpose,
    "Schedule" tab allows to transform the
    interactive task in a scheduled one.
    3.Archive extraction can be started from system
    context menu, or dragging compressed files
    on the application, or with "Extract" button in
    program's tool bar. It can handle multiple
    archives even of mixed types at once, or
    selective extraction of content from a single
    archive. Over 170 types of archives are
    supported: classic ZIP files and its variants,
    new WinZip's ZIPX file format, RAR files, old
    ACE archives, Microsoft's CAB and WIM files,
    Apple's DMG packages, ISO and UDF disk
    images, and many more.

    E-mailing photos


    JPEG format storage is ideal for posting your photos to the Internet and for e-mailing them to friends. (It’s also useful for archiving when you've finished editing them and need to save storage space.) The compressed images still look good on-screen and contain a relatively large amount of information in the shrunken file. JPEG storage is great for maximizing space but not for maintaining image quality. If you want to get smaller files for archiving, use minimal JPEG compression (high quality/low compression). The ideal compression is lossless, which means there's no discernible drop in image quality even though the file size has decreased.
