Zipper - Free Zip & Unzip Program for Windows
This program can be downloaded and used freely. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. After many thousands of downloads, this program is generally considered the best free zip and unzip program. It is easy and intuitive to use. Explaining how to use Zipper is harder than actually using it.
Zipper is a free compression program, and you don't need to pay anything for it. It doesn't contain pop-up ads or other annoying things. However, Zipper isn't free to maintain and wasn't free to create, because it contains commercial components, and was build with programming software.
While Zipper is a free program, it isn't a cheap program, and rivals many commercial programs in simplicity and ease of use.

The software is available for free from the manufacturer's website, Trans4mind.com.

Image Files (JPEGs)
Image files such as JPEGs are normally highly compressed. For this reason, Zipper can only compress them a little. To compress JPEGs try Makeup, a free basic image editor.
