When you want to send an image via email or upload an image to a website, you might have noticed that the graphic file needs to have a certain size, otherwise the process fails. In other words, you will not be able to send or upload a very large picture, so you first need to reduce its size using a specialized software solution, such as SliceMaker Image Compressor.
The application installs smoothly and it features an intuitive graphic interface that encourages users to effortlessly load the files and folders they want to process, then specify the target location. Unfortunately, using drag and drop is not an option, since this method is not supported by the app.
Alternatively, you can also open a chosen image within SliceMaker Image Compressor by right-clicking it and selecting the dedicated menu.
The main purpose of the application is to decrease the size of the loaded images, by altering the output quality and changing the target format to JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP or TIF (you also get the possibility to preserve the same source format).
Furthermore, you can rely on this utility to modify the width and height of your pictures to pre-defined values, as well as append a suffix to all processed images so you can identify them with greater ease.
You can also overlay a text or graphic watermark onto the pictures you loaded within SliceMaker Image Compressor, then customize the font color, type and size, along with the transparency level and position of the stamp.
You can preview the resulting watermark in real-time so you can make sure the output files will match your expectations - however, you cannot preview them on your own pics, since a sample image is used.
To sum it up, SliceMaker Image Compressor comes in handy to all those looking for a hassle-free application for editing their pictures with ease. It does not require any expert skills to successfully compress and watermark files, yet the functions it comes with are not too complex either.
