Radical Image Optimization Tool (RIOT) Portable, a free program designed to efficiently optimize images for the Web!
"Well what do you know, we made it through the RIOT alive! Wasn’t that hard right? I highly recommend trying it out. It’s excellent for optimizing images for the web or just for personal use. Try it and let us know what you think!" —Aaron Couch, MakeUseof.com (October 20, 2012)
"During our tests we managed to trim off about 80% of a picture’s size and the end result showed no visible drop in quality. To make things even clearer, the original file was 3.22MB in size and after compression it shrunk to 605KB, and they looked identical to the naked eye; of course, zooming in to pixel level would reveal the difference." —Ionut Ilascu, Softpedia.com (August 19th, 2011 14:34 GMT)
"The program's interface is plain and not particularly attractive, but it is intuitive and easy to navigate." —Download.com staff, download.CNET.com (July 21, 2010)
Radical Image Optimization Tool (RIOT for short) is a free image optimizer that will let you to visually adjust compression parameters while keeping minimum filesize.
