Hello my friends,

If you have a smartphone with Manila ( Sense), you have to see thaht the PNG included in manila are compressed with a lost of quality

Our chef Chainfire has created a famous apps named "CFC Gui" that aims at compressing png with CFC algorythm but with always the lost of quality.

In addition it created on other apps named "CFC" ( ->Only in command line) that aims at converting png to cfc in HQ ( whitout lost of quality), but many people that use CFC GUI don't know that Chainfire has created a CFC in command line in order to compress in HQ !

In order to compress png to cfc with HQ i have created an apps with GUI in order to compress png to cfc files with HQ easyli ( with this, you don't need to create a batch with a FOR,etc...which is very good if you have a lof of PNG files to convert).



In addition, before to convert my PNG to CFC HQ, i optimize the PNG with the famous png_optimizer_cl ( by Hadrien -> http://psydk.org/PngOptimizer.php). This fabulous software aims at optimizing a png file whitout lost of quality.

To conclude, this program use PngOptimizerCL in order to optimize the png whitout quality loss, and then it use the famous CFC.exe in order to convert the optimised png to manila files with CFC HQ method with padding.The advantage of this tool is first it optimize the png and secondly it compress it with CFC but with the HQ parameters which is not available in the CFC Gui.

So, this tools aims at having better quality manila files than using cfc gui.

Here is a picture with CFC HQ and whitout CFC HQ ( Note that the result is better on the smartpone)



Look at the shadow, the contour, the feathers, the wings and the beak ! And you can zoomIt in order to compare !


Thanks a lot to our chef Chainfire, whitout it, this work wasn't be possible !

Enjoy ;)

Hello y friends,

I have found what is the bug.

If the optimized PNG user a colored indexed mode instead of an RGB mode, the CFC cannot compress it to CFC HQ !

Thats' why i need to modify the programm...

I will correct it monday

Thanks for using it

Best regards,

Nixeus

tested v1.1 yesterday. working fine now.

but there are some problems with specific graphics caused by png optimizer.

would be nice to see a selection if one wants to use it with or without png optimizer.

thanks
