Quickly batch optimize and convert PNG, JPG, and PSD image files without losing quality via a user-friendly and drag-and-drop based interface
Even though most of the time working with large-sized image files is the de facto standard, there are situations when you need them to occupy the smallest amount of disk space possible.
In such cases, applications like BZG Inc's Compress can help you significantly reduce your JPG, PNG, and PSD files' sizes, as well as convert them to other formats if and when needed.
Optimize and convert images using a drag and drop interface
Compress features a simple and intuitive drag and drop user interface which makes it as fast as possible to start optimizing your pictures in batches even if you don't have any previous experience in compressing images using your Mac.
As a bonus, the Compress utility also comes with a dark user interface designed to match macOS' dark menu bar and dock and protect your eyes if you are working late hours on a daily basis.
To start compressing and converting images with the help of Compress, you can select your files using the Finder or drag and drop them on its main window to start the optimization process.
Customize the compression level and save output files to a folder of your choice
Once the compression process ends, the Compress app will automatically display how much disk space it has freed for by optimizing the files and, depending on your settings, will allow you to save the optimized images.
On this screen, Compress also show you if it hasn't been able to process some of your files and enables you to start compressing another batch of images by clicking the “Start Over” button.
It's also important to mention that you can choose where Compress will save the processed pictures, set the PNG compression level to a higher level, and choose the JPEG quality of the output files via its Preferences window.
Intuitive and simple to use image compressor and converter for the Mac
Although Compress performed exemplary during our tests, it does have its own share of bugs as it fails to show which of the input files it wasn't able to compress and why, when it does not compress all images.
In a nutshell, if you are a graphics or web designer and need to optimize your images to occupy as little disk space as possible, using Compress to compress them rapidly is a good choice.
