The best program I found to really compress pictures to the maximum with the full set of settings.

Remember to un-check metadata removing options if you want to avoid losing them :)

Latest version is adware free

The latest 0.6beta version is supposedly adware free.
The plugin version (0.5.2) is still affected though.

Still a great program, too bad it's closed source.
Works under WINE on Linux.

Efficient tool. I use it when I have to publish some heavy image on my blog. Preview mode is great and the soft is simple to use.

I frequently use this tool to squeeze every bit of space out of an image. Has probably saved 100s of gigs of bandwidth since I first started using it many years ago.

It comes bundled with adware, developers are automatically untrustworthy

Not a serious solution

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

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

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