A great tool for reducing size of your PNG. As a website designer, you should make sure every picture you use is optimized for web and that size is reduced to the maximum. That enables fast page loading and better user experience. This tool makes it easy without opening Photoshop and with minimal color loss in the image.
I discovered this tool when I was working on preparing a catalog for an exhibition of 20th century art. The catalog was featuring images of the three artists whose works were presented on the exhibition. Unfortunately, one of the artists had only one portrait image available and since he lived in the 19th century, the photo was in a very poor quality. There was no other way to go than to use this tool that enabled to print it in a surprisingly good quality. If you need to enhance more photos, you can pay a few dollars and get a subscription.
If you have a file that comes in a format you are not able to open, this is a great solution. You can choose from a bunch of formats to convert from and to, ranging from image, vector and video to font files. Imagine you have a file that’s not supported by any of the softwares you are using. And you just need to take a look at it. You can easily convert it to a PDF or JPG or some of the compatible formats. The tool supports over 200 file formats and no login is necessary.
