    Hello,

    I am the author of RIOT (Radical Image Optimization Tool), a free program designed to efficiently optimize images for the Web.
    It is used all around the world and is highly appreciated, even if was released to public only a year ago. There is a RIOT plug-in for IrfanView also.
    Many GIMP users requested a GIMP plug-in that calls RIOT.
    So, I started working on a RIOT - GIMP plug-in and I have now a working version. It still needs some fine adjustments and support for importing more image types from GIMP, but is functional.

    RIOT has enhanced functionality over the existing „Save for web” plug-in. It can be used to optimize the selected area/active layer, feature not present in the Save for web plug-in which saves the entire (visible) image. It also handles transparency and has many other interesting features.

    More info about the RIOT project here:

    I don't know yet its license. Can it also be used for commercial works? I haven't use any optimization image so I'll give it a try. I found the installer so I hope it can be uninstalled too. Thanks for this luciansabo. :wilber:

    Im locking this down!
    But optimization is just a script that optimize the image for one particular thing:
    Example:

    if you optimize it to be at a small server, you want it to take less space...
    if you optimize it to be a animation, it will make it indexed..

    got no moar examples!
    google it... thats all i can say!
    If you want to ask open a new thread, cause this thread was for presenting the RIOT plugin!

    Yes the word has to do with using the image at certain sizes.
    Like you would optimize images at 72 dpi for the web and 300 dpi for printing. =)
