my sister uses a mac and she has a ton load of my photos in a folder on her machine.

I know little if nothing about macs (i use pc)

but is there a way for her to "zip" "rar" compress the folder in mac

and then send it to me using yousendit.com etc

and that my pc can then uncompress it ?

thanks in advance

^ Agreed.

Stuffit is the best compression scheme for JPG images. Doesn't matter if you are using a Mac or a PC. They have developed a new lossless encoder (which replaces the Huffman Coding section of the JPG file structure) to reduce the size of your JPG file 30% on average.

Or she could have just as easily ctrl-clicked on the folder or files and selected "create archive", which would have made a zip file for her, no extra software required. There is a reason that Apple has no longer included Stuffit with their OS, it has become more and more bloted and buggy over the years.
