Optimize and resize your images.

Overview

Pichi is a new app for optimizing and resizing your images. By running your images through Pichi you can reduce file sizes by up to 85% without any noticeable difference in quality. The only difference is that your websites will load faster, shared images will upload quicker, and you'll have more space on your Mac.

Pichi supports PNG and JPEG images. You can quickly convert PNGs to JPEG and even reduce the size of transparent PNGs to sizes similar to JPEGs while maintaining full transparency.

You can resize your images using Pichi, selecting common dimensions for all the popular social media and ad platforms and it'll even output images at standard resolution, double resolution and triple resolution, which is great for developers and web designers alike.

Features:
  • The fastest way to optimize images: Display the UI when dragging image files, even when the app is closed.
  • Batch processing: Just drop/choose a selection of images with no upper limit.
  • Quick Optimization: Get results fast using the default settings. PNGs optimized as PNGs and JPEGs optimized as JPEGs.
  • Convert PNG to JPEG, convert all images to PNG or JPEG, or don't do any file conversion.
  • Resize images based on a percentage, flexible width or height, or fixed dimensions.
  • Resize using one of the 20+ social media and ad platform presets.
  • Create custom presets.
  • Output @1x, @2x and @3x for multiple resolution support.
  • Beautiful UI including Dark Mode.

I received an email from Creatable about a new image compression tool called PICHI yesterday and immediately wanted to test its claims. I was not disappointed! What I was most impressed about was the reduction in file size compared to that of JPEGmini, especially on images which had already been optimised for web in Photoshop. I took a sample JPG file and ran some tests on the original file, and then on a version of the same file optimised for web in Photoshop CC. Original JPG – 3,715,604 bytes (3.7 MB) JPEGmini – 1,131,162 bytes (1.1 MB) – a 70% reduction PICHI – 813,261 bytes (815 KB) – a 79% reduction Optimised for web JPG – 1,710,924 bytes (1.7 MB) JPEGmini – 1,339,201 bytes (1.3 MB) – a 22% reduction on an already optimised image PICHI – 835,558 bytes (836 KB) – a 52% reduction on an already optimised image I also tried with a transparent PNG file of a company logo… the original PNG was 7,424 bytes (8 KB) and the Pichi optimised version was 3,788 bytes (4 KB) – a 49% reduction in file size and the transparency was retained… wow! It looks like there could be some great space savings to be made on image heavy websites. There would be a bit of extra work to do since the files would all require renaming, but according to the developer, replacing the original file instead of creating a copy and suffixing the filename with -pichi is planned for a future version, along with being able to drag and drop folders full of images… fantastic news! Once the two issues I mentioned above are addressed, Pichi will be worthy of a full 5 stars. As such, 4.5 is not bad for a new kid on the image compression block!
