Making multiple small images spliced into a large one (sprites sheet), for game development, this can save the storage space and loaded memory that texture images require in game; for web design, this (CSS sprites) can greatly reduce the images loading frequency and time, so as to make web pages load faster. If you want to use Photoshop to do this, that’s too stupid and inefficient. Or if you gave Zwoptex up, then it’s time to turn to this TexturePacker from Germany.

The advantages of image compression technology include: reduce the disk space needed for images storage, reduce the cost spent on Internet bandwidth and time when you upload images to all kinds of network drives/image hosts, and reduce the time cost on loading images to the web page and downloading them by the users browsing them. There are two grounds determining whether an image compressing software is good or not: compression ratio and the quality of compressed images.

First of all, please note that: UHARC/GUI (finished in 2007) is far from being WinUHA (finished in 2005) with a similar alias ‘UHARC GUI’ (most software download sites mixed them up). It has a compression ratio even higher than 7-Zip – basically we are sure it’s the only multimedia archiver in the world now that supports the maximum compression rate (UHARC/GUI > 7-Zip > WinUHA >> WinZIP/WinRAR).

Image files often contain some unnecessary information (such as comments, EXIF tags, color profile, etc.). The image quality does not have any change after removing them, yet this can achieve the purpose of ‘weight loss’ to image file. And finally that will improve the image loading speed and take up less disk storage space.
