The image resizer and optimizer Riot (Radical Image Optimization Tool) can process images that are loaded into its interface. The program is offered as a portable version and installer at the developer’s website. Single images that are loaded into the interface are displayed in their original form and optimized form. The optimized display is immediately changed when an option in the program is selected. This view mode can be changed so that only the optimized image is shown in the application’s interface.
The image resizing and optimization options are accessible in the lower half of the program. Tabs at the bottom are used to display them on the screen. The software can output the images as jpeg, gif or png images and the first tab reflects that as it offers format specific options.
This includes quality and encoding settings that have a direct effect on the size and quality of the optimized image.
The other two tabs can be used to remove metadata from the images and to make other adjustments to them before they are saved to the computer.
Additional controls are available regardless of the selected image output format. It is for instance possible to zoom in or out of the image, rotate images, resize them or compress the image so that it does not exceed a specified file size.
The batch optimizer on the other hand can be used to effectively resize and optimize multiple images. Images can be compressed, resized, rotated or flipped easily with the tool that can overwrite the existing images or save the edited ones in another folder or under a new name.
Riot is compatible with 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the Windows operating system. The image resizer and optimizer is free for personal use and available as a portable version and an installer.
