ADVANCE PNG: PNG with 7-ZIP's deflate

I've been using ADVPNG for two weeks and what it does is compress PNG with 7-ZIP's deflate compression instead of any old deflate compression. Results can vary between 9 - 20% better PNG compression. I put mine in the C:/image directory. ADVCOMP, deflate, and png are all free.


I just add the images I want compressed in the image directory than type

ADVPNG -Z -4 *.png

All done!
