What is Pngyu?

Pngyu is a GUI for pngquant libraries designed to compress PNG files. The tool allows you to reduce the size of PNG files up to 70% while maintaining good image quality.

Using the program, you can compress individual PNG files and entire folders. Pngyu provides us with the basic data compression options including the ability to define the color palette, the quality of file compression, support for channel transparency in IE 6 or disable anti-aliasing. The user can also specify the path for saved files, activate overwriting option or create a new file names.

Pngyu Review

Pngyu is my favorite tool to compress PNG files uploaded to kubadownload. It uses well known pngquant libraries and offers basic options to compress PNG images. From the Pngyu compress options user can select hight quality relation to highs speed, or change number of colors in images (default is 256 colors). The compressed photo files can be overwritten by Pngyu or saved with custom file name and selected directory. The compression process don't take to much time using Pngyu. Quality of images is good and the size can be reduced from 10% up to 200% depending on the image. Moreover, you can activate channel transparency for IE 6 or disable anti-aliasing, and preview images from the browser. I highly recommend to use this to compress PNG images. Pngyu download links are available for Windows and Mac.
