I stand with the people of Ukraine during this heinous assault on their freedoms, their independence, and their very lives.

sudo apt install pngquant -y
Shell Aliases

Command usage with sensible defaults:

png() { pngquant "[email protected]" --quality 90-100 --speed 1 --skip-if-larger --strip --ext -quant.png }

Above command does the following:

  • Uses a quality scale with minimum of 90% and maximum of 100% for best results
  • Prioritizes quality over speed, which makes no difference on modern hardware
  • Skips the operation if the output file will be larger than the input file
  • Strips all metadata from the file
  • Adds a -quant.png suffix to the file

Example syntax (and output with a filesize reduction of ~64%):
