OptiPNG file type plugin (November 30, 2008)

Recommended Posts

I just tried using this, and it seems to not be working for me...
Bug found and fix will be uploaded shortly.
How I can get rid of this nasty DOS box popping out everytime and preventing me from changing the settings?

Wasn't there a checkbox "show optimization process"?

I didn't think that the checkbox was useful, so it was removed. I'll make the box minimized by default. (It also gives a way to terminate OptiPNG.)
Edit 3: Erm... If you use the "optimized png" file type output instead of the normal png entry, it is rather clear that you want optimization. So why is there a checkbox "Optimize"?
Allow previewing settings without waiting too long. (Replace the preview checkbox)
In my opinion, the fromer UI is much better.
I made the changes to better emphasize what settings depended on what. Please give it a few days, and if you still don't like it, it's not hard to change yourself (zero coding skills required with the forms designer in VS express)
You can choose between Compression methods 'Optimize' or 'Interlace', or both.
Interlace is provided by OptiPNG, so if OptiPNG doesn't run, I can't do interlacing.

Minimized box sounds OK.

That sounds like a huge download.

As with me. ;)

Heh, that proves it. As long as it has nothing to do with Web stuff, I'm lost. ;)

Okay, resurrection, but I feel it to be necessary not just for me, but also others.

I have recently realised that I have lost the newer version of OptiPNG, I've only got the working version before this one, unfortunately, the circumstance involving this whole 'attachment quota' deal seems to have removed all attachments from this topic (?! (not sure if this has happened elsewhere, or if it's just me)), I am therefore unable to download the most recent version. Does anyone have a copy to host somewhere, please?

Many thanks.

It doesn't only happen with images recently flattened; any image I save as an OptiPNG is void.

Am I the only one experiencing this?

You know, neither do I.

Strangely enough, I Like Pi, I have no problems on this new computer. Seeing as I use it (the new PC) almost exclusively now, I'm not going to worry about the other computer.

Anyway, as an example, a spacescape of mine - 1000x1000px - went from 943KB, to 709KB. And it opens at my bidding.

You're a hero. ;)

Can you continue to save, though? I have on many occasions been presented with the same issue, but I have been able to carry on with the save regardless.

I Like Pi, I downloaded OptiPNG Plugin.zip [104.55 KB] and do not see optipng.exe

after extracting from the zip file. I see the .dll and looks like a type of "read me" which

when I try to open it, it just flashes some text and is gone.

Would you give me direction.

Perhaps this is what's going wrong.

You do not open the DLL as you would like any conventional file, you extract the contents of the ZIP into the FileTypes directory, found (by default) here: C:\Program Files\Paint.NET\FileTypes.

You then restart Paint.NET where you will then find OptiPNG in Save's file type drop-down menu.

Myrddin thanks for helping me. I'm glad to learn where to look for OptiPNG file type and I don't see

this file type in my drop down menu. I extracted the ZIP file onto my desktop and dragged it into my "File Type Folder"

in PDN. The following is what I have in the folder. VISTA likes to put everything into a folder it seems.

Is this what I should have? and direct me to what I should have/do.

Thanks, I Like Pi, I had the Optimizer file type in my drop down menu and

didn't recognize it....dumb me !! Tried some pictures with .png, and seeing that I'm not

able to do much with the resizing plugin. One picture was 400x435, saved with the Optimized PNG (*.png),

reloaded it and nothing had changed. Could you give a brief explanation/tut of steps to follow? Or would it

be to involved? Also, sometimes in the "Save Configuration" panel, I get "Preview, file size: [error]".
