[Plugin] PNGOptimizer - Lossless/lossy image optimization

Released: November 26, 2021
Current Version: "0.1.2"

This plugin uses optipng for lossless optimization and pngquant for lossy optimization of PNG files.

Disclaimer: Since this plugin will replace the images in your ebook with optimized images, you might want to save your ePub or create a checkpoint before running this plugin.

Credits

BeckyEbook created the plugin icon.

System requirements

This plugin requires at least Sigil 0.9.8. If you uncheck the Use Bundled Python option, you'll also need to install Python 3. Linux users will also need to install optipng (Debian Arch) and pngquant, (Debian, Arch).

Installation

1. Select Manage Plugins from the Plugins menu and enable the Use Bundled Python option, if it isn't already enabled (or grayed out).
2. Click Add Plugin and select PNGOptimizer_v0.1.2.zip. This will install the plugin, which you can select via Plugins > Edit > PNGOptimizer.

Settings

To turn on lossy optimization, edit PNGOptimizer.json and change the lossless value to false:

Code:
  "lossless": false,
You can also define minimum/maximum quality settings via the quality value:

Code:
  "quality": "0-100",
To display the folder that contains PNGOptimizer.json select Edit > Preferences > Open Preferences Location. Then double-click plugins_prefs and PNGOptimizer.
Windows users can also press WIN+R, paste %localappdata%\sigil-ebook\sigil\plugins_prefs\PNGOptimizer into the Run dialog box and hit Enter.

I installed the JPEGOptimizer and PNGOptimizer plugins and they didn't work properly.
I have received such reports:

I have Sigil 1.8 and Windows 10 Home installed. My mother tongue is polish.
Doitsu, can you help me?
I apologize for my poor English, but I have a translator.

A guess ... your stdin and stdout are not set to use the utf-8 character encoding but instead is set to some other encoding? Perhaps the encoding for an image file name? But just guessing here based on the error message. I am not a Windows person so I do not know how cross process stdin/stdout io is done.

Thank you @KevinH, maybe Doitsu will help?

I am sure he will. He knows much more about Windows than I do.

A simple test is to create a small epub using images file names with ascii characters only and see if that avoids the error.

The plugin(s) might fail, if the image file name contains non-ASCII characters and/or you're running a very old Windows version.

I'll run some tests and try to update the code to fix this issue.

In the meantime, try changing the following part in both plugin files:

Code:
return stdout.decode('utf-8'), stderr.decode('utf-8'), returncode
to:

Code:
return stdout.decode('utf-8', 'ignore'), stderr.decode('utf-8', 'ignore'), returncode
This should display the error messages returned by the utilities.

@Doitsu
In the PNGOptimizer plug, I changed the line as you suggested and it worked fine. I received this message:
Status: success


Lossless processing: exlibris.png ...
Original file size: 11.21KB
Optimized file size: 9.73KB (86.75%)
Image replaced with optimized image.

Lossless processing: logo_mon.png ...
Original file size: 3.12KB
Optimized file size: 2.02KB (64.63%)
Image replaced with optimized image.

Processing time: 0:00:00.15

Total reduction: 2.59KB

Done.
Click OK to close the Plugin Runner window.

The JPEGOptomizer plug also worked (I made a mistake before). I have received a feedback report:
Status: success


Lossless optimization: cover.jpg ...
Original file size: 137.45KB
Optimized file size: 129.08KB (93.90%)
Image replaced with optimized image.

Total reduction: 8.38KB

Done.
Click OK to close the Plugin Runner window.


I am using Windows 10 Home 21H1 OS build 19043.1348

Thank you very much, your prescription helped.

regards
