You can find out more about it on the PNGOUTWin information page at Ardfry Imaging. Take advantage of the 30-day free trial. Two equivalent download versions are available: pngoutwin.zip or PNGOUTWin-Setup.exe. When you first launch it, you’ll be presented with a dialog box which says:
“By default, source files will be overwritten and all optional chunk data will be removed. You will now be prompted to configure these settings.”
Setting the options
Output options: choose whether to overwrite PNG input images or generate new names for each output file. You can choose a different folder for the output.
Performance options: if you select “Show multiple trials dialog after folder/file operation,” an advanced settings panel pops up as soon as you select a file or folder to compress. Also, you can choose to run PNGOUTWin as a background task.
Strategy options: unless you understand how compression algorithms work, simply use the default.
Keep Chunks options:
Compatibility option: only needed when PNG images are destined for systems that use an outdated version of the ZLIB decompression library — e.g. older mobile devices.
