Re: WinZIP compression ratio question

It depends on what your are zipping as to how much it will be compressed. If it is jpeg's, they are already compressed about as much as they are going to get. That is why when you try to zip them you only save about 3 or 4%. Try zipping some bmp's. You will see a huge difference.
