RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v0.5.2

Checker on 4 Aug 2014

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) presents a before-and-after image compression view that allows you to reduce file size of an image into JPG, PNG, or GIF format. Includes optional metadata removal, batch operations, compression to a target file size, transparency options, and other common editing functions (flip, rotate, zoom, pan). Notable versus similar software in the ability to gradually reduce the available colors one-by-one (7, 8, 9, 10...), not just milestones of 16, 32, 64, etc.

The program is also available as a plugin for XnView, GIMP, or Irfanview (see website).

Functional in Linux using Wine. An old, unsupported version is available for earlier versions of Windows.

@Checker The zip download is for 0.5.0; it appears 0.4.6 is only available as installer

Nice and simple GUI! Could use a progress bar, but other than that, I can't say a bad thing about it!

smaragdus: Thanks for the info but I think this topic is better served in the forums. Could you move it from here and over at the SunlitGreen Photo Editor entry?
