PNG Compressor: Compress PNG Images on Your Mac

PNG Compressor

PNG Compression is one of the first steps you can do to optimize your images, but wouldn’t it be freaking awesome to optimize and compress PNG images on your Mac? –Well the moment has arrived and/or arrived again for those who used other PNG compression apps.

PNG images offer true alpha transparency, and adding to the coolness is being able to optimize PNG images, and compress the size for usage in your projects. Our little buddy IE6 (Internet Explorer 6), which is sometimes commonly called the “Web Designers browser nightmare of horror” with its multitude of issues and incompatibility issues that are so large we probably won’t have a database big enough in the world to store the list of issues with IE6; okay, I guess I was a bit harsh on that last remark, but overall its pretty scene especially viewing a website using IE6.

Oh wait, I almost forgot to mention PNG alpha transparency isn’t supported by IE6 as most probably already know, which we can also add to that multitude of incompatibility issues list.
