The GIMP could be used for optimizing, though there may be faster specialized utilities for this.

Irfanview can save JPEGs at a percentage, which cuts the size. I'm not sure about GIFs though.

GraphicConverter is shareware... it works fairly well, but isn't the most intuitive user interface I've ever used.

Sorry you didn't ask a few months ago when Pegasus Imaging was still giving its "JPEG Wizard" away.

Very easy to use, and has often given me better results than our Adobe products.

Their latest version is still just $29, so you might give it a try.
Find it at http*//www.jpg.com/products/index.html

The original question was for free software...

Shareware is one thing, but let's hear about some freeware too!

I use NetMechanic's GIFBot for all my images.

You can use it to slim down either GIF's or JPEGs that reside on your Web site or on your hard drive.

It's free and really cool.

If it's what you're implying it is, nobody in the US who appreciates the reach of the law will discuss it on a public board who's legal well-being they wish to ensure.
