How would like to shrink your PNG files while preserving full alpha transparency?
Tiny PNG is is a free online tool that will help you shrink your PNG file size. Better yet, it’s advanced lossy compression will preserve full alpha transparency.
With a max file size of 2MB and up to 20 images at once, shrinking your PNG’s via Tiny PNG is a breeze!
According to the Tiny PNG website, here’s how it works:
When you upload a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file, similar colours in your image are combined. This technique is called “quantisation”. Because the number of colours is reduced, 24-bit PNG files can be converted to much smaller 8-bit indexed colour images. All unnecessary metadata is stripped too. The result: tiny 8-bit PNG files with 100% support for transparency. Have your cake and eat it too!
Slick! And you can’t see the difference:
