When talking about web development, it is well-known that images usually constitute the largest resource on any given website. Usually, developers spend some time optimizing other aspects of the web’s performance, yet optimizing images can be as efficient or even have a bigger impact. This is why we have compiled 5 Image Optimization Tools to convert files and help your website run faster and better.
These tools also have a free version so that you would not have additional expenses. Want to know them? Here they are:
Imagecompresser.com is a great site to compress images. You can upload up to 10 files simultaneously. The site supports a wide range of formats, such as PNG, JPEG, WebP, JPG, and GIF formats. Besides, files do not have size limit, so if you are looking to compress 10 images or less, Imagecompresser is a great option.
WebUtils Bulk Image Compress
WebUtils Bulk Image Compress does not only compress images, but also allow you to convert them to WebP, JPG, PNG, AVIF, and JXL. Though the site does not specify the limitations on file size or the number of files, you will need some patience and the process of bulk conversion can take a bit. Another advantage of this site is that you can also adjust quality and size.
This site is perfect for offline optimization as it does not have limitations on size or number of files. However, you can only compress files that are JPEG or PNG. CompressImage has different customization options around image size, the compression level or you can customize a suffix filename to have the image in WebP format.
As its name suggests, AnyWebP is exclusively for converting images from WebP format to formats such as PNG, JPEG or ICO. It offers native offline apps for Windows and Mac that will allow you to bulk convert. And as it focuses on WebP, you can convert files from PSD, BMP, TIFF, etc to this format.
SVGOMG focuses on this format only and helps reduce the sizes of svg graphics. It is a Node.js-based tool and it is highly useful considering most programs that produce this type of file include irrelevant data on such a file, making it heavier than needed.
