So I've been using this program a LOT and looking for ways to streamline the process. As such, I did some digging and came up with an easy batch file system:

FileOptimizer in a batch file

Steps:

  1. Stick a copy of FileOptimizer in C:\portable\FileOptimizer (or edit the batch file listed below)

  2. Create an empty text file with the following green text and edit it as needed:

    Code:
    "C:\portable\FileOptimizer\FileOptimizer32.exe" "C:\Users\[i]USERNAME[/i]\Desktop\stuff_to_optimize"


  3. Name the file optimize_this_folder.bat and launch whenever you want the folder contents to get optimized.

    According to the help file, this works recursively.


Efforts with ImBatch's ImageMonitor

    I tried to setup something with ImBatch's "watch" (ImageMonitor.exe) mechanism with ImBatch but so far no luck. The program will launch an external program but only AFTER the batch process is completed and via the main window. This means the watch program ignores the batch file and even the main window won't let you move the files to another location once they're finished. This is important because ImBatch recognizes files it's already optimized but FileOptimizer does not.

This is great piece of news- for me ribbon disabled is better than ribbon minimized.
I don't find a way to make FileOptimizer remember its window size and position on desktop. It seems that this can be achieved by manually editing the INI file but this is not very handy for me. So I would appreciate "Remember window size and position" option.

This program just keeps saving us bandwidth. Although I've been using it on existing site animated GIFs, I hit some dramatic space savings on the USBFlashCopy file via FileOptimizer. It went from 87k to 56k (65% of the original).

Now FileOptimizer (version 9.10.1575) remembers its desktop position by default- a undocumented tiny yet great enhancement. Or perhaps this change is described in this line:

I have the suspicion that the developer is reading this forum. If so- many thanks, Mr Chamorro for your excellent work on FileOptimizer, I appreciate your continuous efforts to make FileOptimizer even better very much!

You are right, I am the FileOptimizer developer, and I have been reading the forum, and watching your comments and suggestions since a couple of years ago.
Unfortunately I did not had time to register here, and thank you everyone for you support in making FO more popular. And when did, my post was deleted by the moderator, so just trying again to let you know I am here.

Well I hope that wasn't my doing. Sorry if it was.

Anyway, welcome to the forums and I'm glad we could help out. I use FO frequently and love how it just gets better and better. Thanks!

@nikkho

Welcome to the forum, I am glad to see you here too!

I do not use FileOptimizer very often but is a unique and extremely useful tool. Perhaps I am the greatest ribbon-hater here so I would like to thank you for making it optional- this made me happy because I never expected it would happen. ;)

Moderators here are not too many and they are as friendly as the users so I really can't imagine what happened, perhaps it was a kind of mistake or misunderstanding and I am convinced it won't happen again. ;)

Keep your great work on FileOptimizer.

Not sure. When posted, I received a message that my first post should we waiting for a moderator approval. Then I received an email saying it was rejected because it was not relevant.

Well it was not an easy task, and took some time, so I had other priorities than removing the ribbon. But it was a technical/legal issue.

Thing is that using the ribbon in your app, requires a free license from Microsoft. Unfortunately the MS page that handles that died. Furthermore, new C++ Builder 10.1, does not come with ribbon component anymore because of that, so when I upgrade, the ribbon will be lost.

So I was forced to implement classic menus again, and in the transition, I managed to keep the ribbon too.

Great stuff, thanks for your continued work on this. I appreciate your work to keep adding metadata options. I have applications where I specifically want to zap it and places where I specifically want to keep it while compression so having that capability is very helpful.

Sure. FileOptimizer needs to be flexible enough to keep original format features when needed.
Thanks to you.
