MK Net.Work Image File Optimization

What is Image File Optimization?
for JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF EMF, WMF, TIF and TIFF files

A transparent process to make your image and picture files two to ten times smaller

Image File Optimization / Compression for jpg, png, bmp, and other image and picture files

Take a large JPG file.
Did you know that it could be made 2 to 10 times smaller?
And at the same time remain a fully standard JPG file with the same rendering quality.
This is essentially what the MK Net.Work Image File Optimization does!

Too good to be true? See for yourself…

Skeptical?
See for yourself examples of image files before and after optimization.
Download these files and check for yourself their size and their rendering quality before and after optimization.

How does Image File Optimization differ from Zip compression?

Zip compression requires Zip decompression.
When you Zip-compress a file, the resulting file is a .ZIP file. Hence, You then need to unZip this ZIP file in order to retrieve your original file.

In contrast, The image file optimization is applied to the image file itself.
Thus, an optimized JPG file is a fully standard JPG file. It does not requires any "de-optimization" before to be opened in the Windows Photo Viewer or in any other application able to open JPG files. And the same principle applies to other image file types.
Contrary to Zip compression, image optimization is 100% transparent to the users and to the applications consuming the optimized image files.

Another important difference between Zip compression and image optimization is that, contrary to Zip Compression (*), image optimization delivers very significant volume reduction results on image files.

(*) As you probably already know, it is commonly admitted that it is not worth Zip-Compressing image files like JPG, PNG and GIF files. This is because Zip Compression is not able to reduce the size of these files significantly. The same goes for Microsoft Office files like DOCX, PPTX, XLSX etc. files. Zip compression is also inefficient on these files while our optimization software delivers very impressive volume-reduction results.

You already have low level disk compression on your file storage systems?

Contrary to Image File Optimization, hard drive compression cannot compress image files.

Is the MK Net.Work Image File Optimization able to save disk space in this case?

Yes it is!
Disk compression is like Zip compression. It does not deliver any significant file size reduction on image files.
You can test this easily for yourself: activate the Windows built-in folder compression on a test folder and copy some non-optimized image files provided here: Examples of image files optimized by our software (before and after optimization).
Then create another folder, activate the Windows Folder compression for this folder and copy the optimized version of these files into this folder. Compare the size of each folder displayed in the folder properties.

The same principle applies to MS Office XML files like DOCX, PPTX, XLSX etc. files. You can do the same test with the XML files provided here: Examples of MS Office XML Files optimized by our software (before and after optimization).

You already have network compression appliances installed on your networks?

Contrary to Image File Optimization, network compression appliances cannot compress image files.

Is the MK Net.Work Image File Optimization able to save network bandwidth in this case?

Yes it is!
Network compression is like Zip compression. it does not deliver any significant file size reduction on image files.
You can test this easily for yourself: simply send some non-optimized image files provided here: Examples of image files optimized by our software (before and after optimization) on your network and measure the network bandwidth consumed.
Then do the same test with the optimized version of these files and compare the amount of network bandwidth consumed by these optimized files against the amount of network bandwidth consumed by the non-optimized files.

The same principle applies to MS Office XML files like DOCX, PPTX, XLSX etc. files. You can do the same test with the XML files provided here: Examples of MS Office XML Files optimized by our software (before and after optimization).

Curious to know more about our optimization software?

We have optimization solutions providing automatic and transparent Image File Optimization and XML File Optimization for a large array of email, collaboration and storage platforms.

You can find the list of the platforms covered by our optimization solutions in the home page of this site.

We also have a quick optimization software guide enabling you to find, in a couple of clicks, the MK Net.Work optimization software you are looking for.

Before migrating our file servers to Microsoft Azure, we used Z-OptimiZr for File Servers to apply Image Optimization and XML Optimization to all of our user files.

The results were impressive with more than 50% savings on the processed files!

Beside the volume reduction benefits that helped us avoiding network bandwidth problems after our migration to the Cloud, the key point for us was the total transparency of the process.
 
The optimization process did not change anything for our users. Even the original date-times of the files were preserved after optimization!

Based on these excellent results, we are now deploying ZipMail for Microsoft Outlook and Z-OptimiZr for Web Browsers and Z-OptimiZr for Cloud Storage on all of our user computers.

After our migration to the Cloud, we faced serious network performance issues.

After evaluating several solutions, we found that the MK Net.Work optimization software based on Image File Optimization and XML File Optimization was our best option.
 
The efficiency, the cost, the simplicity and the transparency of the MK Net.Work optimization software were simply unbeatable.

Today ZipMail for Microsoft Outlook and Z-OptimiZr for Web Browsers are deployed globally.

Our network performance issues have disappeared.
We are also more than happy to have seriously reduced the growth rate of our needs for cloud storage.

Many thanks to ZipMail and Z-OptimiZr!

The MK Net.Work Image File Optimization is like magic!

On average it reduces the size of our JPG and other image and picture files by 50% to 70%

We use it with MS Outlook (ZipMail for Microsoft Outlook), and with our SharePoint web applications (Z-OptimiZr for Web Browsers).

Having the size of all image and picture files reduced by 50% to 70% makes everything faster and avoids massive waste of disk space and network bandwidth.

The image optimization process is fully transparent. Users do not even have to know about it.

ZipMail and Z-OptimiZr also optimize MS Office XML files like docx, pptx and xlsx files with similar reduction ratios!

The size of our SharePoint Picture Libraries was growing out of control. Large numbers of non-optimized image and picture files were causing enormous waste of disk space and network bandwidth.
SharePoint performance was also impacted.

We evaluated Z-OptimiZr for SharePoint Databases and found that it was able to recover 60% of the disk space consumed by our SharePoint Picture Libaries!

The original rendering quality of the image files was preserved by the optimization process.
And all of the SharePoint Metadata associated to the SharePoint picture files as well.
The optimization process was thus really 100% transparent for the users.

The optimized picture files stored in our SharePoint libraries being now 2 to 3 times smaller, they are downloaded 2 to 3 times faster.

Smaller databases and smaller files to serve also greatly help improving SharePoint performance.

We are now evaluating Z-OptimiZr for Web Browsers and Z-OptimiZr for Cloud Storage. The goal being to optimize image files (and Microsoft Office files as well) before they are even uploaded to our SharePoint servers by the users.

We are really impressed by the high level of transparency of the software, its very small footprint, and by its volume reduction power.
