Optimiizing graphic images, for skins or even other images can provide benefits in MediaPortal.

Many PNG files output by popular graphics software packages, evenPhotoshop or Fireworks, are not as small as they could be.

Optimizing these images can reduce skin size by 25% and may even improve performance in MediaPortal or speed up creating cache.

Optimization Methods

  • PNGGauntlet - a .NET program that uses Ken Silverman's PNGOUT command line utility to optimize PNG files. No information is lost during this process - the only thing that changes is the file size.
  • Photoshop - almost the same result can be achieved by doing a "Save for web and devices"
