Software Product Description

Images play a major role in making websites more appealing to visitors, and they pass messages faster and better. However, the images may also drive potential customers away if they make it difficult to access your website. For example, they can easily increase load times, and many visitors do not have the patience to wait for slow-loading pages. GIFmicro will help you have the best of both worlds because it reduces file sizes by optimizing GIF images.

The use of GIF images is especially important in Video e-commerce or v-commerce where webmasters post videos in their content headers to increase view rates. These videos are first converted into GIF animations. However, the file sizes can still be relatively large, which increases download times and reduces amount of traffic.

GIFmicro provides two modes of file optimization: the Lossless compression and Lossy compression modes.

In Lossless compression mode, the free GIF optimizer removes unnecessary data written into GIF files to reduce file sizes without sacrificing image quality. On the other hand, the Lossy compression mode reduces file sizes even further by intentionally reducing image quality. You can set the percentage to which the original file size is reduced under the Options menu. The menu provides check boxes you can use to select the required compression mode and adjust color reduction when you select Lossy compression mode.

The user interface displays several details about the files you are working on, including file names, paths, image thumbnails, original and new sizes. You will also see queued images, the ones being optimized and those already optimized, including the percentage at which they have been reduced.

Double-clicking an item in the list opens a preview screen where you can confirm image details. The preview also plays animated GIFs.

GIFmicro comes in both installer and portable versions, and it is compatible with Windows 7, 8 and 10.
