    What's New in WinZip 12.1?

    WinZip® 12.1, released in May 2009, introduces the new extended Zip file (.zipx), the next step in the evolution of the Zip file format. Additionally, the Zip and E-Mail functions have been enhanced in WinZip 12.1 to allow users to take advantage of the image resize feature in WinZip.

    Description:

    - Introduction of the new .zipx file extension. By using advanced compression methods to create Zipx files, WinZip 12.1 creates WinZip's smallest Zip files to date.
    - Ability to resize images being sent during Zip and E-Mail functions. Users can quickly and easily resize images during the zip operation without altering the original in any way.

    Zipx Files Deliver Advanced Compression

    .Zipx files

    WinZip 12.1 introduces the new extended Zip file (.zipx), the next step in the evolution of the Zip file format. By using the most recent compression methods to create .Zipx files, WinZip 12.1 creates WinZip's smallest Zip files to date. The new .zipx file extension also makes it easier to share highly compressed files with others by making it clear that the file was created using an advanced compression method and that WinZip 12.1 or another compatible compression utility is required to open the file. Of course users can also still create “Legacy Zip 2.0” compressed files with WinZip 12.1 (resulting in a .zip file extension) by changing the compression method on a case by case basis or by changing the default compression method.


    Photo Compression, Management and Sharing

    Resize images on the fly

    Additionally, the Zip and E-Mail functions have been enhanced in WinZip 12.1 to allow users to take advantage of the image resize feature in WinZip. Users can quickly and easily resize images in a zipped attachment without altering the original in any way. Resizing images is useful when the recipient does not need the full quality or size of the original. Resizing images before compressing them can substantially reduce the attachment size, reduce upload and download times for your e-mails, and help ensure that you don’t exceed e-mail attachment size limitations.
