Image Optimizer's Description
Image Optimizer is designed to to prepare the best possible JPEG, GIF and PNG image files for the web. File size reductions of up to 50% or often much more are possible, which can considerably decrease web page download times, reduce server load, reduce bandwidth charges and save on disk space.
The Standard Edition includes Resize, Digimarc Watermark, Caption, Crop, Rotate, Sharpen, E-Mail and Scanner & Digital camera interface and a Batch Wizard for compressing multiple images.
Image Optimizer includes and builds on the technology introduced with JPEG Optimizer. You have complete control over GIFs and PNGs, by optimizing with regions.
There are two main modes of operation, 'Work with whole image' and 'Work with regions' .
Many users will find that they get good results using 'Work with whole image' mode as this will enable them to produce compact images quickly and easily. Advanced users will want to use the 'Work with regions' mode so they can fine-tune the optimization process to achieve even smaller file sizes.
A third mode, Batch Wizard allows you to optimize multiple files.
Image Optimizer gives the user complete interactive control of the entire optimization process, from changing compression settings to the ability to apply these to some areas of the image more than others.
With Digimarc watermarking you can watermark and track your Web Images. Image Optimizer will invisibly embed hidden copyright information and a link to your website (see below). Image Optimizer gives you complete control over how the watermark is embedded.
