Feature Requests and Suggestions

PunyPNG is always looking for an improvement. Got an idea or suggestion? We want to hear from you!

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Create a wordpress plugin

    Create a wordpress plugin like WP Smush.it (who doesn't work with wp 2.8...)

    • Remove the "EXIF"-like information in PNG?

      When I punify a PNG image and check it in a hex editor afterwards, I still see information like:

      tEXtcreate-date 2009-11-09T09:28:03+00:00
      tEXtmodify-date 2009-11-09T09:28:03+00:00
      tEXtSoftware Macromedia Fireworks 8

      Etc...

      This sounds like one of the first things you'd want to get rid of, in my view. Maybe include an option to remove this info?

            • Leave animated gifs as animated

              Animated gif files are basically multiple gifs files displayed in a certain order.

              When sending them through PunyPNG, you'll usually see a HUGE decrease in filesize, but that's because only 1 of the files that make up the animations remain.

              While PNG is indeed a better format, Animated PNG files are as good as not supported.

              I used to use smush.it for animated GIF files, but their upload feature is gone.

              In the documentation, I find this: http://www.lcdf.org/gifsicle/

              That being the program they used for it.

              PNG might be a fantastic filetype, but untill animation with PNG is supported, the…

                      This is similar to how Smush.it on Yslow does it.

                          Open source drawing applications are in need of good image optimisation features as most are lacking in it, such as, GIMP & Inkscape.

                              • make browser add-ons like smush.it which will 'punify' all the images in the web page

                                When i am on a webpage, and i want all the images in the page punified, it would be great to have a browser add-on, like smush.it, which will grab all the images in the page and optimize it and give back a zip file with the punified files.

                                      • Compress and use original file format.

                                        Maybe I'm missing the feature, but Puny turns everything into a PNG. If I'm optimizing my website, for example, and process 200 images, they may be a mix of jpg and gif and png, I need to reupload the same exact filename (and consequently filetype) or else they will just 404 because a jpg became a png.
                                        Plus, I can't imagine PNG will always beat GIF and JPG for every type of image, there are some images that JPG is probably better for, and some that GIF might be better for.
