Software Review:NetGraphics Studio

"But I don't want to size it, I want to Optimize it!"
NetGraphics Optimizer
Figure 2: The NetGraphics Optimizer
The Optimizer (See Figure 2) is a small utility which loads fast, takes up little screen architecture, and takes care of several tasks at once. You can select an image to edit by clicking on the "Open" button in the Optimizer window, or you can drag-and-drop images from other applications into the Optimizer. Conversely, when you're done editing your image, you can drag-and-drop it into your browser window to see how it will look within the browser. The tool is designed to work like a "Wizard," easing you through the optimization process step-by-step. If anything, it's too easy to use...but don't be fooled by its ease of use; this tool is extremely useful. The Resize process (See Figure 3) enables you to simply grab and drag your image to size it--without a loss of clarity.

The Optimizer recommends the format in which you should save your graphic, but it allows you to make the final choice. It enables you to visually inspect the graphic as you use a slidebar to change the compression ratio and number of colors in the image.
