  • Convert an SVG to PNG and then crush the filesize brutally with pngcrush. Good for icons and website junk that you want to keep small, expecially before base64 encoding. Uses inkscape, not imagemagick, as IM doesn't always handle gradients well. This way also seems to sometime save some file size (eg. 619 with Inkscape compared to 695 with IM). IM can do general images: img2png(){ png="${1%.*}.png"; convert -background none "$1" "$png" && pngcrush -brute -rem alla -rem text "$png" "$png.new" && mv "$png.new" "$png"; }
