Ever felt the need of converting hundred of image file(s) from one format to another format (to BMP, JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIF, TGA, PCX etc.)? Need to upload or use images on webpage, but image files are consuming most of the precious web space because of the bulky size of the files? Would not be better if you can minimize the size, and at the same time, give a perfect color combinations by replacing high density colors component with existing matching colors, thereby reducing the the diversity of the excess color components as low as possible to ultimately result in the smallest size possible without compromising considerable quality.
The little secret of OptimizeBatch is that it can apply the same optimized setting applied to the current image to thousands of images without explicitly processing one at a time. The procedure is simple. You choose your image files from your disk, then set every minute setting on the format chosen and even see the resultant effect right in front you. With the current output settings, you can save the current optimized image to disk or save (batch) all image file(s) in the Image Basket.
You can save GIF images in one of the color depth: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256 colors. The way each color components are embedded to make up the original image can be adjusted or tweaked using the various color maps available, namely, MS Map, Optimal, Fixed Color, iNet, MS 256, Fixed Gray. Choose one of these map to quantify the color distribution.
Apply about 10 dithering effects (Binary, Ordered, Halftone, Forward Diagonal, Backward Diagonal, Horizontal, Vertical, Odd, even, equal) to adjust the way each color component (pixel) blends to bring upon the closest impression of the original image. You can even choose the color mode (color or greyscale). You can flip vertically and horizontally as well as invert the optimized image. You can also output files in Interlaced version of GIF which is useful for displaying very large images quickly.
