ImageVice is an Adobe Photoshop filter plugin providing a new, intelligent color reduction technology that enables common multimedia format files, such as GIF, PICT, BMP, and PNG, to be made up to 70% smaller than previously possible.
ImageVice is an Adobe Photoshop plugin filter that is compatible with Adobe Photoshop 3.0 or better and most other image editing application that support Photoshop filters such as Fireworks.
The catch is ImageVice does have a learning curve, and most of the greatest things you can do with it do take a short investment of time to learn how to use it well. ImageVice is not a hit the button and be done with it tool if you want to get the most out of it, though there are a lot of things you can do with it that are hit the button and be done simple.
The potential to cut the size of all your graphics by more than half over what is possible with other tools, even other BoxTop tools, provides plenty of motivation to work through a few well written tutorials that will help you understand what factors make images compress better and what the six sliders in the ImageVice dialog really do. This knowledge will help you use all Web graphics tools better, not just ImageVice.
