    Hello :)

    The only applications I am aware of would require you to have root access to the system. I suggest consulting with your web hosting provider about the best way to achieve this.

    Thank you.

    Howdy,

    What image type is it? PNG's can be reduced well with tools like PNGCrush PNGCRUSH Other formats have tools that accomplish this. But you might be chasing 1 to 5% decrease in size since most image formats are compressed nowadays. Unless you're shooting with .raw or old .bmps.

    Thanks!

    I have my own dedicated server with root password, ssh access and everything else but not sure what to use to install them. I wanted to install optiPNG and JPEGoptim , tried installing using putty and it didn't know. Could you please tell me the exact process to install those softwares, im a total noob when it comes to server thing.

    Thanks

    What steps did you take to install those applications? The following third-party URL may be of help to you:
