Re: LiberKey - Portable sofware suite

Nobody asked me either but throughout the last years I have tried all kinds of launchers: Buttons, Menus, Keyboard shortcuts, Gestures, even WinRAlias to press WIN+R (Run) and type three letters to launch my most used Apps. Everything is convenient and worth trying, currently I have configured Execu...

Re: QuickImageComment (metadata utility)

Everytime that I come across the photo metadata topic, I stumble upon the very same situation: I don't like metadata neither in documents nor in pictures or media files, I don't need it except for one and only one single exif tag: DateTimeOriginal (i.e. I always want to know when in the past I took ...

Re: PNGoo: lossy PNG image compression front-end w/ alpha

@smaragdus
I got a smaller filesize with version 1.8.3 (from 2012) although a bit slower. I recommend the 256 colors default option to avoid non-aesthetic visual quality. Regardless, still testing, if I come up with anything worth sharing, I will.

Re: Pngyu

It is interesting that Pngyu achieves better results using an old (unknown) version of pngquant Well, I tried version 2.7.2 plus two old versions and got the exactly same results, thus, I would love to know where did you get that "oldie but goodie" version :) I also noticed that using pngquant and ...

Right!, but I'm not that fond of PNGout as I feel it sort of a "brute force" optimizer, I have no doubt it gets lower sizes but at a sluggish price, I will definitely try PNGwolf and PNGcrush to compare amongst all of them.

Re: PNGoo: lossy PNG image compression front-end w/ alpha

after brief testing I can tell right away that: AdvPNG is for fast PNG optimizing (opaque PNGs) OptiPNG is for better PNG optimizing (opaque PNGs) PNGquanti is a must for transparent (alpha) PNG optimizing PNGquanti gets the best results with both full and gradient transparency and also gets the bes...

Re: NoteCase Pro

In fact I am still searching for a really good outliner and I wonder whether such a thing exists. Me too. Rather than being cross-platform, Outliners should be CROSS-DEVICE more especifically MOBILE, and they should use standard cloud services to sync (eg DropBox, GDrive and the like), I mean Simpl...

Re: Can NOT Print to PDF

But how do you close it? I just click the CLOSE button in the doPdf Window, nothing remains in the Systray or in the printers and no processes left whatsoever. BTW Win10 has its own MS PDF PRINTER out of the box. On a related recall from me I tested several pdf printers about 2 years ago trying to ...

Re: Can NOT Print to PDF

I've been using this portable oldie version of doPDF for quite some time with no issues. Just run and while active you can print from any application, this has saved me from installing any virtual pdf printer. Just today I tested it in Win10 and works fine with say AbiWord.

Re: Free Download Manager (FDM)

I'm third on board to flunk this user interface. Colors and tabs often help me to better figure out an App's functionality making it more intuitive. Blueish theme just kind of tells me: - Hey! every feature is just cool as ice and resembles Windows appearance, now, good luck figuring out how it all ...

Re: Registerware policy poll

A dev has his reasons to make an App registerware. A user has his reasons to consider it interesting and useful. A registerware is always aware that it's not well accepted or well peferred among similar software; that's the way it is. Every portable and free piece of software deserves a chance to be...
