Best Free Image Optimizers : Photo JPEG PNG Compression Tools

1: Kraken

Kraken is a web tool designed to optimize and compress images. It supports both lossy and lossless compression but it is recommended to compress images losslessly as it will not degrade the quality of your image.I am using this tool since last month and now I am using it more often, as it manages to provide the highest compression ratio as compared to other free tools. Kraken comes as paid and free version both.You can compress almost any image by using the free web interface, but the free version can tolerate a maximum of 1Mb of image size while the paid version can handle the images which are upto 10Mb.

2: Puny PNG

Puny PNG is lossless image compression online tool. It can compress your image to the best possible extent without degrading the picture quality.The compression ratio of this tool is much better than any other tool. Now you must be thinking if this tool is the best then why the hell I have kept it on second postion ? The reason behind it is if you are using the free web interface of the tool then you are allowed to compress and optimize only 20 images, but if considering the paid version of PunyPNG, then it is unmatched and the best. If you are a professional web designer then it is recommended  to go with the paid version of this tool , the plans start from just $3.
