There is a host of other features too such as the ability to remove the background from any image, add speech bubbles, frames, text, and frames to photos. .

Monday Morning Cool Tool: TinyPNG

I love learning about new tools to make social media marketing more creative and effective, so I’ve decided to share some of my favourite tools with you at the start of each week.

This week’s cool tool recommendation is TinyPNGa handy compression tool for JPEG and PNG images to make your sites and apps faster.

TinyPNG uses smart lossy compression techniques to reduce the file size of your image files. By selectively decreasing the number of colors in the image, fewer bytes are required to store the data. The effect is nearly invisible but it makes a very large difference in file size.

 Use TinyPNG to shrink images for your apps and sites. It will use less bandwidth and load faster. The files produced by TinyPNG are displayed perfectly on all modern browsers including mobile devices.
