Integration of external picture file optimizer (Pingo)

Post by masterjp »

I usually compress jpeg and png files with pingo optimizer ( to compress jpeg/png files to the smallest size.
The results of png files are impressive. If you use jpeg files it will only saves 1-30 percent.
the pingo optimizer saves jpeg files in another way and remove exif data.
The optimization ist very fast (multi cpu core support).

It would be nice to see such a feature in XnViewMP in the future.

The Riot Plugin ( has a good implementation for external optimizer.
You choose the optimizer file (*.exe) and can set the parameters. The plugin only works with xnview (32 bit),
but is not compatible with XnViewMP.
