Optimising the file size of your images shouldn’t mean making them grainy or blurred. Squash can maintain quality while reducing file size and saving space. Take a look at some of the features below and learn why this is a must have app for every Mac user.
Drop images or folders onto Squash and let it roll. Okay, so there's no "roll", but "export" didn't really have the same ring to it.
But with this feature it can be! Batch convert your photos into monochrome, fifty shades of grey has never looked so good.
Rename files with a prefix, suffix, or just replace them entirely. There's also a flexible sequential number engine. Oooh fancy!
