For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.


you need to decompress your JPEG to intermediate buffer and after that you can compress it with any desired compression ratio.

There is some performance trick. You can decompress only DCT coefficients, dequantize them, after that you can requantize them with new quality setting and compress with huffman function. Right now we have no such sample in IPP, but if you are familiar enough with JPEG technology it is not complicated task to write such code yourself (or modify our existing IPP sample).
