xat.com is committed to keeping Image Optimizer at the leading edge of Web site acceleration. Image Optimizer already contains the following advanced features and more are planned for future versions:
Regional/Extra Compression – advanced JPEG compression that adds the ability to compress some (less important) regions of the image more than others.
MagiCompressionTM – Image processing algorithms to automatically select the areas of an Image that can have regional/extra compression applied. MagiCompression speeds up the task of optimizing images and can be used in fully automated batch modes.
Anti-Speckling – Many GIF compression algorithms add dithering to regions of solid color. Image Optimizer has proprietary algorithms to minimize or eliminate this effect.

Eliminating the speckling also gives a significantly smaller file size.
Noise reduction – Image Optimizer Professional has a state of the art tool for the removal of single pixel spots and noise from an image.
