So, Does that mean PNGGauntlet don't use every possible way to make the smallest output?

Even though input files are in 2 or 4 bit, the smallest filesize can be achieve by using 8 bit colour depth. Well, with brute force, PNGGauntlet should try every option to produce the best output.

It seem "brute force" doesn't use "/d" option. I tried with a series of GIF files (retrived from here ) which all of them are 4 bit (have less than 16 colours).

The correct way should be sorting by name in each type. I think capitalization is a factor. In a folder (all files ...

XnView uses CPU 100% in View Mode...

I uses XnView 1.80.3 (Sep 6 2005) on Windows XP SP2. Could someone confirm this problem. I don't know that this only happen to me or not.
