The graphics editor I use most often just to tweak and modify photos and images, especially for desktop backgrounds. Outside of that I've enhanced more than a few presentations by making color edits that PowerPoint's inexact image tools couldn't do. I love this program.

TweakPNG v1.4.6

Checker on 12 Sep 2014

TweakPNG is a low-level utility for examining and modifying PNG image files. As it works with detailed file internals, a familiarity with the PNG format is useful.

A 64-bit version is included (within the x64 subfolder).

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Windows registry. But given the nature of the application and the small number of settings it exposes, I think it can be accepted as portable.
Unicode support: Yes
License: GPL
How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch tweakpng.exe.
What's new?
  • Maintenance release.
  • "Copy image to clipboard" feature.

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 go...is this app really portable (using v1.05)?

Ben on 2008-03-14 16:16

Very strange...it 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...?

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.
