RESOURCE: PNG Compression

OptiPNG: Advanced PNG Optimizer
"OptiPNG is a PNG optimizer that recompresses image files to a smaller size, without losing any information. This program also converts external formats (BMP, GIF, PNM and TIFF) to optimized PNG, and performs PNG integrity checks and corrections."

"Pngcrush is an open source optimizer for PNG
Its main purpose is to reduce the size of the PNG IDAT datastream by trying various compression levels and PNG filter methods without compromising quality."

On this date I have no idea how these work, but I am interested in trying them out to see if they compress well without degrading the image.
