I sometimes take screenshots on my Mac during video-calls with friends/family (with their consent of course!) and would like to add those images of a photographic nature to my Apple Photos Library. I have considered these options/alternatives:
- Add the PNGs as-is to Apple Photos: But a lossless image format such as PNG for pictures which photographic content is a waste of storage by a factor of 10-20x. Apple Photos has no function "Compress this file in the library". Hence I need external pre-processing.
- Set JPEG as the output format for macOS's native screenshot command. That's possible. But I do my screenshot spontaneously, hence I would need to switch that option all the time, and until I switched the situation on screen may already be over. So this is no option either.
- Hence leave PNG as the default for maximal quality preservation. And where it makes sense compress in a post-processing later, before adding to the Photo Library.
So does any one know and CLI tools or GUI apps for that purpose?
