    Will Run On: 2000/XP/Vista/7

    Saving images for web/email/other media with the best compression ratio and quality is a difficult task if you don’t have the right tools. Choosing the right format then choosing the right parameters are the key factors of smaller files. Previewing the resulting image and the projected filesize will help the user choose the best settings. This kind of image optimization software is often called “Save for web”.

    • open many image types including rare/scientific types
    • save and optimize JPEG, GIF and PNG with a simple, clean user interface
    • works in dual view: (original – optimized image) or single view (optimized image).
    • Automatic preview of resulting image
    • in-place compare function (alternativelly display the original image over the optimized image to notice small pixel changes)
    • compress files to desired filesize threshold
    • fast processing (all is done in memory);
    • see instant results including resulting filesize
    • batch support (process multiple files at once)
    • transparency handling options
    • decide if you want to keep metadata (comments, IPTC, Adobe XMP, EXIF profiles, ICC profiles).
    • Unsupported metadata is removed
    • transfer metadata between image formats (destination format must support them)
    • common tools: pan and zoom, rotate, flip
    • basic image adjustments: brightness, contrast, gamma, invert
    • visually reduce number of unique colors for PNG and GIF images in order to reduce filesize
    • (two quantization methods are available: Xiaolin Wu and NeuQuant neural net)
    • resize image by using well known resample filters (ex: Lanczos3, Catmull Rom, Bicubic, and others)
    • out-of-the-box support for external PNG optimizers (optipng, pngout, etc)
    • the compression and the results are comparable to those of commercial products, even higher.
    • Adaptive logarithmic tone mapping algorithm (Drago) used for HDR images

    What's New
    • refactored resize function
    • allowed specifying just width or height in batch resize
    • improved PNG loading: added support for binary transparency in all bit depths, refactored the entire Load function
    • fixed ICO transparency handling
    • fixed a bug with applying properly the settings using the keyboard
    • updated libraries to LibPNG 1.4.3, OpenEXR 1.7.0, OpenJPEG 1.4.0 (SVN patch 2010-04-16), LibRaw 0.10-Beta3, LibTIFF 3.9.4 (CVS patch 2010-07-13)
    • RAW plugin: actual RAW bit depth is now displayed
    • Fixed loading of Pentax KX RAW images
    • Minor improvements for the EXR and RAW plugins
    • the plugins from RAW + HDR package now run without SSE2 CPU extensions
    • greyscale conversions now use the Rec. 709 formula
    • new standard conversion from RGBF(A) high dynamic range formats allows to import such images with no tone mapping (gamma correction applied)
    • fixed bug with Report file size in Batch when using an external optimizer
    • improved TIFF and PSD loading
    • small performance improvement in saving JPEG
    • fixed bug with non existent files added in Batch if typed in the open dialog
    • refactored the internal function ConvertToCommon
    • fixed automatic scrolling to the item on which Batch is working (Vista)
    • fixed a regression bug with losing resolution, ICC profile and background in some situations
    • added Credits in About dialog, other minor modifications
    • other clean-ups and improvements
