Tiny Image Processor Manual

3 ways to make images tiny

First select Input and Output Folders. Please note that all images with the same name will be overwritten in the Output Folder. The program looks for .jpg .jpeg and .png images only...

You can select the same folder for Input and Output, so your originals will be overwritten. Not a good idea if you want to try the same images with different settings.. Better to make a new folder and store the tinified output there, so you can compare with images tinified with other settings and the original images.

Tiny Method One

Use the program stand-alone, without uploading to Tinify.com...

Set the JPG Quality to your liking.

You have three options;
1) Keep Original Dimensions, no resizing. (but still jpg compression)
2) Normal Resize, this will resize your images with the entered width-height. If your image orientation is landscape, the number is width, if your image orientation is portrait, the number is height.
3) Fill- Fit, your image will be resized so it fits within the width and height as entered. (original proportion is lost)

*note png images are resized (with no loss of transparancy), but not compressed in any way. If you need to tinify your png images, use method two or three.

Tiny Method Two

Use the programs internal jpg compression and upload to Tinify.com...

Set the JPG Quality to your liking.

Like Tiny Method One, but after the internal resizing and compression the image is uploaded to tinify.com to reduce it even more in size. You will need an (free up to 500 images) API key from tinify.com, get it here. Select "Upload to Tinify.com" after entering your API key.

Tiny Method Three

Skip the resizing and internal compression, upload directly to Tinify.com. You will need an (free up to 500 images) API key from tinify.com, get it here. Select "Upload to Tinify.com" and "Upload Originals"  after entering your API key. This method gives the best quality/size compression.

With Method Two you can get better compression than with Method Three, at the expense of some quality. Try out what is still acceptable for your purpose. You might be surprised.....

*note Uploading to and downloading images from the tinify API takes time, depending on your internet connection speed....

Compression Results

The program gives no indication of the actual reduction result of the tinifying / compression action. Best way of doing things is to put the output of each session into a different folder. Then, you can just right click on the folders (properties)  to compare sizes of the images....
