The correct title of this article is Image::Pngslimmer. The substitution or omission of the colon is because of technical restrictions.

In computer programming, Image::Pngslimmer is a Perl module of functions to reduce the size of PNG computer graphics. The module offers several basic functions, including:

  • zlibshrink – which uses Perl's zlib implementation to attempt to better compress a PNG's IDAT (image data)
  • filter – to apply adaptive filtering to the PNG's IDAT to help improve compression
  • discard_noncritical – to remove non-critical chunks if they exist
  • palettize – to use a colour palette, possibly through colour quantization using the median cut algorithm
