  • Useful Mac OS X Application for Optimising Images - Recommended!

    If you're running Mac OS X, there's an awesome application called ImageOptim which optimises an image post-creation, perhaps through Photoshop, and dramatically reduces the size of the image. For example, I made a few graphics in GIMP and some came out at 1MB I recall, and they were crunched to somewhere around 50KB - 100KB and they were as good quality as the originals too!

    ImageOptim

    If anyone knows of any such programs for Windows that does the same thing, feel free to share .

    Thought I'd share a similar optimisation application I found today called Trimage for Linux distributions. For Ubuntu users, it's available in the Ubuntu Software Centre; for other Linux distributions it is available in the software repository for certain distributions

    Teminal Commands

    Ubuntu:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install trimage
    (Alternatively available in the Ubuntu Software Centre.)

    Debian:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install trimage
    OpenSuse:
    Available here: http://software.opensuse.org/search?...lude_home=true
