Most of the website designers prefer to use images with PNG format on their website. I am no different from them, I also prefer to use PNG format only. As the image size is much smaller from BMP files but still they are large and sometimes cause my website to load slower which is very annoying to me and visitors also. So I was searching a tool to reduce the size of my images without losing much quality of the image and found this very useful online service which reduces the size of PNG images considerably and very easy to use. I have conducted test on various image sizes and sharing them in this article.

Comparison Table between Original Images and Converted Images
|Original Image Size||Converted Image Size||Colors|
|194 KB||71 KB||256|
|194 KB||62 KB||128|
|41 KB||18 KB||256|
|41 KB||16 KB||128|
|Conclusion: Very useful utility, but my view is to go for 256 colors as it will convert images with almost no loss of quality and if you see from the table data above reducing colors to half does not reduce image size to much.|
