TODO - add my notes, and scripts
Optimizes JPEG images, performing magic to reduce size, or optionally stripping metadata for even further savings, or performing lossy re-compression for potentially extraordinary size reduction.
I like this idea, and it's actually freed up a significant amount of space. Being able to take a 5MB file and knock it down to 1MB while maintaining excellent visual quality.. is astonishing

I installed this with slpkg:
\slpkg -s sbo jpegoptim

jpegoptim v1.3.0 x86_64-pc-linux-gnu
I believe this was in Lubuntu's repository.

At one point I noticed that when using jpegoptim (at its most minimal settings) it would work more than one time on a file, reporting minor improvements on the second run.
That set off some alarms, and I stopped using it.
