One of the most obviously irritating things about receiving photo attachments from newbies is their total disregard for sending compressed photos. Surely, it must be a pain for them to upload megabyte sized photos as it is for me to download them. It takes time. That’s when I go out of my way to educate them on image compression.
If the lesson has to be short and uncomplicated, then the software for the purpose also should have the same attributes. My voluntary tutorial on image compression starts with RIOT. But it’s meant to bring order as RIOT is an acronym for Radical Image Optimization Tool.
The free image optimization software (Windows-only) helps you decrease the file size considerably with a few clicks. RIOT supports JPEG, PNG, and GIF. You can also load PSD and BMP files. You can browse and open an image or just drag and drop it into the RIOT program. The dual-pane view helps you compare the original file size and the default compression applied on the image.
