Works OK for me. Unpacked, installed, ran it. Tried it with a few pictures -- it converted them to AVI video. Please note that the best results are obtained with pictures of moderate sizes, e.g. 640x480 pixels (most digital cameras will produce much larger pictures, which may cause the codec or this software to malfunction -- in my case it did not cope very well with 5 megapixel pictures). I used another portable freeware to convert all pictures to 640x480 (this was Irfan View, also known as I_VIEW). Hope it will work for you too. Excellent small program.

I had the same problem as Local...installing it normally it works, but try to move it to another directory and no this app really portable (using v1.05)?

Very seems to not run if an Explorer Window for the program folder is open...create a shortcut, place it somewhere else, close the open program folder, then run the shortcut, and all's well...?

PngOptimizer v2.4.1

webfork on 21 Feb 2015
  • 316KB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by Replika

PngOptimizer is an easy-to-use program to compress common graphics formats to PNG format with no visible quality difference. Files can be added one at a time or in batch to the program icon or window. Images can also come from the clipboard by pressing CTRL+V while the application is in focus. Graphics formats supported include BMP, GIF, TGA, as well as further compressesing PNG files by removing unnecessary data without affecting quality. Animated GIF and PNG files (APNG) are also supported. Size decrease for PNG files varies widely on the original editor, but GIF and BMP conversions can be as much as 40% and 95% respectively.

Note: The 32-bit and 64-bit releases may have different version numbers.

Alternatively, PngOptimizer Portable automatically switches between 32-bit and 64-bit and adjusts the screenshots path.

System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
Path portability: No

How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice

Optionally, to save images from the clipboard to the PngOptimizer application folder, right-click on the window and select Custom for the target directory and enter a period (.) in the box below.

jpgQ v1.0

webfork on 25 Nov 2014

jpgQ is an image analysis tool that can estimate the quality settings used to save a JPEG image. Since it's difficult to determine the compression level without access to the original, this program can help determine the value (between 1 and 100).

Useful for editors interested in seeing if a JPEG edit will drastically reduce quality, since higher numbers are more likely to survive another instance of lossy compression without serious degradation.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: None
Unicode support: No
License: Freeware
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch JpgQ.exe.

ImgSearch v3.0.8

Andrew Lee on 12 Feb 2013

ImgSearch lets you search and delete similar images across multiple folders. It supports JPG, GIF, BMP, ICO, CUR, WMF, EMF, PNG, PCX image formats. It is possible to view and edit groups of similar images already found simultaneously with searching of other similar images. Files are removed to the Recycle Bin and can be restored in case of erroneous deleting.

System Requirements: Win98 / WinME / Win2K / WinXP
Writes settings to: None
Stealth: ? Yes

uh..that's 1,500 images. Darn typing skills!

I like this program. It actually does what it's supposed to in a decent amount of time on a retail Vista (dual core) computer. It's sophisticated. I would love if there was an analogous program for sounds too.

Webfork on 2010-01-08 06:51

Works beautifully. Saved me quite a bit of disk space with pictures that were either identical but of slightly different sizes or of the same situation side by side so I could choose the better pic.

JPEG & PNG Stripper v1.5.7.70

webfork on 19 Apr 2014

JPEG & PNG Stripper is a drag-and-drop metadata stripper/cleaner for one or more JPG/JPEG, JFIF and PNG files, saving disk space and protecting privacy. Metadata carries a variety of information about the camera or device used to take the picture, date it was taken, and other data primarily important for photographers. Because metadata increasingly carries more and more information about the pre-cropped original photo and on where the picture was taken (geo-location), metadata can represent a privacy risk. Deleting metadata usually saves between 1 and 10% of the overall file size.

The program includes a "preview only" feature to show how much space image metadata is taking up.

System Requirements: Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7
Writes settings to: User profile folder. But given the nature of the application and the small number of settings it exposes, I think it can be accepted as portable.
Stealth: ? No
Unicode support: Yes

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch Stripper.exe.

Smallest images possible without loosing quality.

for /R .\ %%1 in (*.jp*) do jpegtran -optimize -perfect -copy none -progressive "%%1" "%%1"
jscl -d -j -n -r -s *.jp*
contig/s *.jp*

cmd /c "start /b /low /wait cmd /c for /R .\ %%1 in (*.png) do for /L %%j in (1,1,5) do pngout /f%%j "%%1""
deflopt -abdr *

Metadata in images is just the same as tags in audio files. They are used to store useful information (OK some of the information is not not that useful to most of us like what camera took the pic). Would be better if this program gave you a list of common metadata and let you tick those you didn't want it to remove.
