FileOptimizer v14.40 Updated

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF) and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line.

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder

That's not portable. I can only get a setup file installing in C: drive.

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

I've had this program on my computer for several years without having a real need for it. Knowing the nature of what it does and some of my projects, it was there just in case. Well, today I screwed up a script (evidently what one browser thinks is commented isn't something other browsers agree upon) and this helped me fix it quickly and easily. An excellent program.

64bit version from https://sourceforge.net/projects/winmerge/files/alpha/2.15.2/ can be used to replace 32 bit folder in PortableApps.com version. So far no problems with it. Renamed original file, just in case.

JohnTHaller on 2018-08-12 17:56

PAFUser: For a better experience, use WinMerge 2011 Portable. WinMerge 2011 is a continuation fork of WinMerge that is regularly updated. Our portable package includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions and switches between them.

I had a document with both text and pasted images. While Acrobat Pro kept complaining there was rendered text and wouldn't OCR the available images, PDFXChange got right to it.

AndTheWolf on 2019-08-31 17:03

The OCR language files for English, Spanish, French, German, Czech, and Finnish now are already in the "Tesseract" folder of the portable zip package, and there is no longer an OCRBaseLangPack.zip download on the OCR language page. The are other languages there, but six mentioned here are already in the base product.

@AndTheWolf: confirmed, thanks for that. Updating entry.

Ignore my previous comment. I am an idiot. It actually uses an old version of Sumatra, which was faster and lighter.

Midas on 2015-12-24 15:59

@ripu: you shouldn't be so hard on yourself, mistakes happen. :)

@Midas I only tried the screenshot feature, and it did not create HKEY_CURRENT_USER\RtColorPicker or any other registry entry.

Midas on 2015-02-18 16:22

@ripu: thanks for reporting.

webfork on 2018-06-23 14:09

I just need to say again, good god this has a ton of features. It's far from smooth or intuitive, but if you do a lot with screenshots, you should get acquainted with what this can do.
