2. Software Overview
StuffIt Deluxe is a popular file compression and expansion utility developed by Smith Micro. It was originally developed only for Macintosh computers, but is now available for Windows.
StuffIt Deluxe can compress archives in several file formats, including the native .SIT and .SITX formats. StuffIt Deluxe provides advanced features for compressing audio and image files. JPEG images can be compressed up to thirty percent further without losing image quality. This allows users to reduce the size of e-mail attachments and store more digital photos on their computer. By compressing audio files, StuffIt Deluxe enables users to store more music on portable media players.
The StuffIt Deluxe user interface provides several methods for creating and expanding archives, including the built-in archive wizard, the drag and drop system, and the StuffIt MagicMenu. StuffIt Deluxe allows you to create archives for different purposes, including FTP transfers, split archives for e-mail attachments, and archive encryption for protecting sensitive data. The software also provides tools for scheduling backups, burning archives to discs, and creating self-extracting archives (.SEA files).
Stuffit Deluxe is a useful program for compressing or archiving files, such as images and video. It is also useful for creating backups and encrypting files with sensitive data. However, Stuffit Deluxe is more expensive than other compression utilities, such as WinZip, so you may want to try those options for your needs.
