[prMac.com] Hengchun, Taiwan - Ohanaware today is proud to announce the release of ICNSmini 1.0 for Mac OS X, their new developer utility that slims PNG, ICNS, TIFF and Iconset images down in file size. Some files can shed up to 85% of their digital fat. Underneath ICNSmini's gorgeously modern, sleek and simple exterior, lies Ohanaware's custom ICNS generator, custom TIFF processor and "pngquant." pngquant is the #1 process for compressing PNG files, and its behind many image compression tools.
Shrinking ICNS, PNG & TIFF files can shave megabytes of a Mac Application, enabling quicker download times, reducing the applications footprint on disk and improving overall perception of the application. Shrinking PNG images for a website, will make it load quicker and enable customers to navigate to what they want quicker.
* Can shrink ICNS files, down to 15% of their original file size
* Converts Iconsets into compressed ICNS files, with the same savings as an ICNS file
* Compresses PNG files, up to 25% of their original size
* Can slim TIFF files, on average down to 30% of their original file size
* Simple Mac like interface, drop images in and ICNSmini goes to work
* Batch processing (available via In-App-Purchase) allows multiple images to be processed in one go
* ICNS element stripping, helps to reduce ICNS files by removing unused elements
* Converts some classic ICNS elements to the more modern versions
Notes: Actual compression rates will vary, dependent upon the content of the image. ICNS compression can reach 15% when additional "Element stripping" is enabled in the preferences, otherwise ICNS average rates are about 25% of their original size. ICNS element stripping will make the ICNS file incompatible with OS X 10.6 or older. PNG compression is processed by the open source pngquat project.
* OS X 10.9 Mavericks or newer
* Compatible with OS 10.11 El Capitan
* 3.8 MB
ICNSmini 1.0 is available today and is free from the Mac App Store in the Graphics & Design category. Batch Processing is available via In-App-Purchase, without batch processing images can still be compressed, one at a time.
