Reducing Image File Size in SQL Server 2005
Posted on 2009-04-01
I have a table for file attachments, and the majority of them are images. They are stored in image field iin SQL server, with a corresponding "mimetype" varchar field indicating the file type (if that matters). There are a few hundred TIFF and BMP files, but the majority (15,000) of them are listed as PJPEG file types
I would like to run something to reduce the size of these images, I know many are 5-10MB and they don't need to be anywhere that big. The backup filesizes are getting out of hand and it's all due to these pictures.
What are my options to reduce the size of these images or the table as a whole?
