FileOptimizer v10.00 Updated

  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 21 Jul 2017
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A long list of supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

@kozak: did you try registering that DLL with Windows?
(e.g., "regsvr32 BORLNDMM.DLL" at the command line)

Most images and files I post to portablefreeware go through this amazing compression tool. When compressing PDF files, I strongly recommend enabling the lossy DPI compression settings (usually around 150 or 200 is fine for most documents).

I like it allot, it is just what I have been looking for. The interface is like MS Management Studio but better. My experience with support was great, I sent in a question via e-mail and received an answer in under 15 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend it especially to anyone who likes working with Management Studio.

Pixia is a powerful raster graphics editor with a unique user interface. It includes various photo filters, brushes, layers, text and broad file format support. Note that the program has a fairly unique interface so, when learning Pixia, it's easier to discard everything you know about other editors like Photoshop or Paintshop and start from scratch with the tutorials and help files.

Checker: a portable version of Paint.net is available, but untested and not something I would use: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=61988#p61988

Webfork is correct, there is a portable version. Worked fine for me on XP. I also like the knockoff of it called Pinta available for Linux. It's not full-featured yet, but it certainly works.
Off-topicP If you really want portable, put your favorite version of Linux including whatever programs you want on a USB stick and you've got an entire portable OS!

Download link still pointing to Pixia 6.00G rather than to 6.00H and gets a "not found" error.

Well this has been here a very long time, this program has worked fine for my uses.I was looking for an older version from the website I found in Japanese, the problem was many of the Japanese words are spelled wrong which changes the meaning. :D
