Do you have a graphics-heavy website? By the time you include an interesting masthead, some nice photos, a handful of buttons and other widgets, you can have a lot of bandwidth tied up with images. Multiply that by several pages—or several websites—and you can be looking at some serious storage space here. In addition, each of these little pictures has to be downloaded by each of your visitors. Add to that the possibility of a slower connection for several of your visitors, and all of a sudden you're not providing the best possible user experience.

PNGCrushrrr to the rescue. This tool will take your PNG images and squish them into more compact, bandwidth-friendly versions. We were able to take a fairly compact graphic and shrink it by over 80% without breaking a sweat, although of course your mileage may vary. And it leaves your original intact, so if you don't like the results, you haven't lost anything.

PNGCrushrrr is a Mac application. It requires OS X version 10.3 or higher.
