Is there a way to use pngoptimizer for png saving. (or at least have it run automatically)


Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I'm wondering whether I can have it as the default for saving png-s or at least have it run after saving.

 

I know there's an optipng thing but it's slower and/or doesn't compress as well. Also it's added as a different format. So Paint.NET never defaults to it.

PNG optimization is an excruciatingly slow process unless the image is very small.

 

I've always recommended doing external PNG optimization as a "final pass" on your content creation. That is, do it after you're doing with all of your edits, before uploading it somewhere else.

There is a filetype plugin for TinyPNG. Is that any use?

It'd save a fair bit of time if I wouldn't have to do it manually. Also pngoptimizer seems to be the fastest of the lot I tried

The problem with TinyPNG is that it lossily encodes the PNG, reducing the colors and other things like that.


That is a problem. I most definitely don't want that with a PNG.

Sounds like you're motivated to come up with a solution then. Shouldn't be hard -- monitor your files for when they change, and then automatically png-optimize them.
