Crunch - Insane(ly slow but wicked good) PNG image optimization

  •        81

Crunch is a tool for lossy PNG image file optimization. It combines selective bit depth, color type, and color palette reduction with zopfli DEFLATE compression algorithm encoding using the pngquant and zopflipng PNG optimization tools. This approach leads to a significant file size gain relative to lossless approaches at the expense of a relatively modest decrease in image quality (see example images below). Historical benchmarks with the files included in Cédric Louvrier's PNG Test Corpus versus other commonly used PNG optimization software are available in

pngquant - Lossy PNG compressor — pngquant command and libimagequant library

  •    C

pngquant is a PNG compresor that significantly reduces file sizes by converting images to a more efficient 8-bit PNG format with alpha channel (often 60-80% smaller than 24/32-bit PNG files). Compressed images are fully standards-compliant and are supported by all web browsers and operating systems.This is the official pngquant repository. The compression engine is also available as an embeddable library.

Flyimg - Microservice to resize and crop images on the fly

  •    PHP

Image resizing, cropping and compression on the fly with the impressive MozJPEG compression algorithm. One Docker container to build your own Cloudinary-like service.You pass the image URL and a set of keys with options, like size or compression. Flyimg will fetch the image, convert it, store it, cache it and serve it. The next time the request comes, it will serve the cached version.

adept-jpg-compressor - A Bash script to automate adaptive JPEG compression using common CLI tools

  •    Shell

When compressing JPEG images, the same compression level is used on the entire image. However, most JPEG images contain homogeneous and heterogeneous areas, which are varyingly well-suited for compression. Compressing heterogeneous areas in JPEGs to reduce filesize causes compression artefacts due to the lossy nature of JPEG compression. This script adaptively alters the compression level for areas within JPEGs (per-block) to achieve optimized file size while maintaining a decent visual quality. This script achieves a significantly reduced file size compared to standard tools such as cjpeg while maintaining good visual quality, as can be measured via SSIM. This is good news for the Web Performance and thus Web Developer community to achieve a great user experience on websites.

JPNG - JPNG is a bespoke image file format that combines the compression benefits of JPEG with the alpha channel support of a PNG file

  •    Objective-C

In iOS and Mac OS apps there is typically a choice of two image formats: PNG format allows transparency but produces large image files and is unsuited to compressing images like photographs; JPEG is great for creating small files and provides a range of compression qualities to suit the subject matter, but doesn't allow for transparency. JPNG is a new image format that combines the best of both of the other formats. JPNG is not really a format in its own right, it's a simple file wrapper that combines a JPEG and PNG image within the same file. JPEG is used to efficiently compress the RGB portion of the image and PNG is used to store the alpha channel.

giflossy - Lossy GIF compressor (please report bugs/PRs to the gifsicle project)

  •    C

This is a fork of Gifsicle with lossy compression option. Gifsicle manipulates GIF image files. Depending on command line options, it can merge several GIFs into a GIF animation; explode an animation into its component frames; change individual frames in an animation; turn interlacing on and off; add transparency; add delays, disposals, and looping to animations; add and remove comments; flip and rotate; optimize animations for space; change images' colormaps; and other things.

imgmin - Lossy image optimization

  •    C

Image files constitute a majority of static web traffic.[17] Unlike text-based web file formats, binary image files do not benefit from built-in webserver-based HTTP gzip compression. imgmin offers an automated means for enforcing image quality as a standalone tool and as a webserver module. imgmin determines the optimal balance of image quality and filesize, often greatly reducing image size while retaining quality for casual use, which translates into more efficient use of storage and network bandwidth, which saves money and improves user experience. Websites are composed of several standard components. Most (HTML, CSS, Javascript, JSON, XML, etc) are text-based. They can be efficiently compressed for transfer via gzip, supported by all mainstream webservers and browsers. But image and video files are binary, non-text files, and generally are not worth auto-compressing in the webserver.

Scrimage - Scala image processing library

  •    Scala

Scrimage is a consistent, idiomatic, and immutable scala library for manipulating and processing of images. The aim of the this library is to provide a quick and easy way to do the kinds of image operations that are most common, such as scaling, rotating, converting between formats and applying filters. It is not intended to provide functionality that might be required by a more "serious" image processing application - such as face recognition or movement tracking.

imgp is a command line image resizer and rotator for JPEG and PNG images. It can resize (or thumbnail) and rotate thousands of images in a go, at lightning speed, while saving significantly on storage. Powered by multiprocessing, an intelligent adaptive algorithm, recursive operations, shell completion scripts, EXIF preservation (and more), imgp is a very flexible utility with well-documented easy to use options.

grunt-contrib-imagemin - Minify PNG and JPEG images.

  •    Javascript

Select optimization level between 0 and 7. The optimization level 0 enables a set of optimization operations that require minimal effort. There will be no changes to image attributes like bit depth or color type, and no recompression of existing IDAT datastreams. The optimization level 1 enables a single IDAT compression trial. The trial chosen is what OptiPNG thinks it’s probably the most effective. The optimization levels 2 and higher enable multiple IDAT compression trials; the higher the level, the more trials.
