    TinyPNG uses smart lossy compression techniques to reduce the file size of your PNG files. By selectively decreasing the number of colours in the image, fewer bytes are required to store the data. The effect is nearly invisible but it makes a very large difference in file size!


  2. pngquant is a command-line utility and a library for lossy compression of PNG images.
  3. -Combines PNGOUT, OptiPNG, and DeflOpt to create the smallest PNGs -No image quality is lost — only file size -Converts JPG, GIF, TIFF, and BMP files to PNG -Ultra-configurable
  4. Experimental, fast Web PNG/JPG optimizer which offer lossless, visually lossless or lossy compression. it performs image reductions over iterations thanks to recursive multi-processing and multithreading systems.
  5. OptiPNG is a command-line PNG optimizer that recompresses image files to a smaller size, without losing any information. This program also converts external formats (BMP, GIF, PNM and TIFF) to optimized PNG, and performs PNG integrity checks and corrections.
