RIOT - Radical Image Optimization Tool Comments

Not a serious solution

Install OpenCandy adware - not serious from the developer. Ban this kind of software.

And thanks to, I found very good alternatives like XnConvert: lightly more complex interface but much more options and features !


Portable version is clean

Hi, good news: the portable version seems clean from OpenCandy adware (VirusTotal)
You can find it here.

Riot is also included in tools like IrfanView and Gimp. I think they don't have OpenCandy too. The 'Extended Plugin' installer is infected too, though!

I did some random comparison tests between Riot and Caesium, and found out that Caesium did the job slightly better. I will switch and ban this OpenCandy tool. Thanks AlternativeTo!


Contains trojan

Riot-setup.exe contains a trojan, use caution. See this VirusTotal analysis.


Beware: PUP!

Trying to install RIOT, I receive a warning from Malwarebytes about installation of potentially unwanted progams (PUP). Beware.


Note on plugin version

Alpha transparency in PNG images is not saved correctly when used as a plugin (DLL version), so be sure to run the stand-alone version if you are compressing PNGs with alpha transparency.


Very good

Very good image compressor. I've tested similar commercial software and "RIOT" had the best compression rate. Simple and easy with a small memory footprint. Recommended!
