    Pros: 

    Clean interface, easy to use

    Cons: 

    none

    It's helpful when you need to post/send smth but the image is to big. You simply need to drag and drop the picture to get resized one. So there's no need to use PS or any other complex editor.

  • Pros: 

    Awesome looking, really lightning fast

    Cons: 

    Bad compression

    Tried with several images, not compressing that much at all compared to some other sites :/

Great tool and I love that it works offline as well. Just a little tip: The example images imply that you also change the width and height of the image.

Nice tool, I’ve needed something like this. One feature request: support shrinking of animated gifs by converting to webP

Any plans to give Guetzli option? I always run my images through ImageOptim that uses JPEGOptim, Jpegtran, and Guetzli.

@johnbhiggins Thanks for testing Shrink Me! Currently I do not plan to support Guetzli, but I will take it into consideration and add it to my list. Maybe I'll support it in the long run ;)

This looks promising. Tried it for a few of our photos which we would traditionally use on sites like AirBnB and it reduces file size by half which will help us to speed up listing new properties.

Tried a photo and compared it to tinypng.com. Shinkme saved 5% and tinyPNG 73%. Looks really slick but need more work.

@emin_roblack Thank you for your feedback! Did you compress a JPG oder PNG image? In case you compressed a PNG file, my guess is that TinyPNG uses a lossy compression technique on PNG files, which Shrink Me does not. I wanted to preserve the lossless quality of the PNG image format.
