Description: PngOptimizer is a simple utility. Some of what it does can be accomplished with other programs, but with its small size and ease of use it might fill a need.
When you open it, it presents a drag and drop target. You can drag PNG, GIF, BMP, or TGA images files onto it, and the program will produce an optimized PNG image in the same directory without overwriting the original. It is designed to be used with My Computer (Windows Explorer), and stays on top to make drag & drop easier.
You can also do PrtScn or Alt-PrtScn, then right-click and paste into the drop target. It will create a nicely optimized PNG image. The default location for those images is \Documents\Pictures on the USB drive. I expect most people would find that the most useful. If you happen to "copy" some other image onto the clipboard, it can be pasted there also, even if it started out as one of the non-supported formats, and PngOptimizer will turn it into a PNG in the screenshot directory.
