If the right tool is not used for compressing file, then there can be loss of quality in the new compressed file. Therefore a question that comes to the minds of many is how to reduce the size of the file, without quality loss? There are many optimization tools that perform this function, but the problem is you need to use separate tool for each file type. How about a simple tool that can compress most of your files/file extensions without quality loss? Well, FileOptimizer does exactly that.
Compress Different Files Without Quality Loss
FileOptimizer is a freeware program that uses lossless file resizing technique to reduce file size and it supports number of popular formats related to image, audio, PDF, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel, eBooks and many more.
Here is a small list of supported file extensions: AIR, APK, APNG APPX, BMP, CBZ, DOCX, DLL, EPUB, EXE, GIF, GZ, ICO, JAR, JPEG, MNG, MP3, MPP, PNG, PPTX, ODT, OGG, OGV, PDF, PUB, SCR, SWF, TIF, VSD, WEBP, XAP, XLSX, and ZIP file formats among others. The developer has mentioned that even this big list is not complete and it supports many other formats also.
To compress files, FileOptimizer uses various compression engines in the backend for example, PNG Optimizer, Ghostscript, Mp3 Packer, etc.
Using this program is very easy. You simply have to drag and drop the file or folder to the interface of this program. Before proceeding forward, note that this program doesn’t lets you select any output folder for saving new compressed files, instead it will overwrite your old file (original one) with the new one. Therefore make sure you first manually backup your original file to a separate directory. Once you have added all the files, right-click on the application interface and click on “Optimize”. This will start the optimization process and you can know the status of the file from the “status” tab. In most cases, the process will be finished within minutes. You can also know about the original size and the compressed size in the queue.
It is perfectly suitable for web developers, webmasters, home users and for any other user who wants to reduce the size of the file (be it for uploading on the internet, sharing with others or for any other purpose).
FileOptimizer is free for personal and commercial use. This program works on Windows XP, 2003, Vista, 2008, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
