Image Optimizer 1.0
Compress PNG images without losing quality

Image Optimizer is a tool which can apply lossless compression to PNG files, reducing their size by up to 40% without any reduction in image quality.

The program's interface is poor, but its operation is simple enough. Drag and drop your files onto the work area, select File > Optimize All Files & Save to a Different Folder, and wait. When the compression process is over, a folder will open with your slimmed-down files and you can view the results.

We tried Image Optimizer on our test images, and it did very well. Our real-life web graphics (PNGs taken from a variety of websites) were reduced by an impressive 39%. Compressing high resolution photos is much more difficult, but even here the program was able to achieve something, shaving 4.5% off the size of our pictures.

There are also some down sides here. This is a trial version which expires after you've run it a certain number of times (around ten, we think, although this doesn't seem to be mentioned anywhere). And there are no details on pricing, either. So while the program does work well, use it with care, and get the very maximum value from its first few runs.

Verdict:

Image Optimizer has a poor interface, and has no indication of how much it costs. The program does offer good lossless PNG compression rates, though - without adding watermarks - so if that appeals then we'd give it a look.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
