Reduce PNG images weight

The image format PNG is one of the most complete. It allows different compression level as JPEG, transparency as GIF, and even several transparency level as no other format! :-)

If some painting software deal correctly and optimize these different criteria, most of them leave in the PNGs a lot of useless information. This is the case of the largely used from Adobe (Photoshop, Illustrator...). PNG Optimizer can reduce this over-weight by deleting all the useless data from the images, without harming their quality.


PNG Optimizer show a single window where we move the files to reduce. We can also drag and drop BMP, TGA or GIF files to convert them to PNG.
