@smaragdus: from the latest changelog, looks like your request has (finally) been granted... :)

@Midas
Yes! I am glad I did a small contribution to the development of Winyl by testing it with some Cue sheets. The developer is a very helpful guy and he fixed all the problems some Cue sheets caused.

64 bit "test" version available: http://vinylsoft.com/download/winyl_portable_x64_test.zip I have not had any problems with it.

RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool) v0.6.1 Updated

billon on 15 Oct 2018
  • 5MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 15 Oct 2018
  • Suggested by ashghost

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. Many of the official entries here on PortableFreeware have used RIOT for compression. Note that the installer version of this program is considered adware.

Category:
System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Freeware
How to extract:
  1. Download the "Portable version" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Create two empty text files: Riot.ini and Riot-external-tools.ini in that folder
  3. Launch Riot.exe
Similar/alternative apps: FileOptimizer
What's new? Fixed:
  • A bug in batch mode where in certain conditions optimized files don’t get written.
  • Memory leak when opening the batch window, which also caused Access Violation in host applications if used as plugin.
  • Issue with saving of zoom factor.
  • Default batch window size not showing Settings button in certain situations.
  • Compress to Size button not always enabled when needed.
  • Minor UI fixes.
Removed:
  • Feature to toggle “Report file size changes” from batch settings. It is on by default.
  • Menu item for Help Context. Docs will be moved to the website.

Thanks freakazoid but I am already using this version and nothing seems to fix my problem.It could be an option causing this freezing behavior.

Carl on 2015-08-16 11:30

Nevermind, I was not waiting long enough for the indexing to finish. It seems a bit longer with windows 10. Last 64 bits version work fine.

freakazoid on 2018-07-28 02:05

Yay, first official update in five years! Still my favorite launcher!
