Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Announcing: ImageSieve, a tool to assist in sorting and archiving images and videos
6 projects | reddit.com/r/rust | 13 Feb 2022
I absolutely loved all the crates available that made my life very simple in many cases. I used (among others) the slint ui framework, kamadak-exif, img_hash, fast_image_resize and rawloader.

I'm using default img_hash algorithm - Gradient. It is also possible to use with this library different algorithms - https://github.com/abonander/img_hash/blob/master/src/alg/mod.rs#L20-L81

I have had good experiences with https://github.com/shssoichiro/oxipng . Although, I suspect this wouldn't give you nearly enough space savings as jpg.

Exported png image with color-to-alpha edit is huge

If you do want the file as a PNG (for transparency and a common format that's well supported), but don't want it so huge, consider something like oxipng. https://github.com/shssoichiro/oxipng

oxipng, pngquant and svgcleaner — optimizing images
Losslessly Optimising Images
9 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 30 Aug 2022
I wonder how `pngcrush` compares to `oxipng` (https://github.com/shssoichiro/oxipng).
Personally, I use `oxipng` if I want lossless compression. However, most of the time, I use `pngquant` instead, since it gives significant size reduction even at `99%` (I can't even distinguish between the original and reduced image).
pngquant --quality=99 --ext=.png --force file.png

Depending on your workflow it might make sense to export PNGs directly from Affinity and then reduce their size with a utility like Oxipng, which uses all your cores to find the best algorithm for each particular image.

(Urgent) Best Image Compressor Sites That Barely Compress?

Not sure what extensions of images you use, but if they’re PNG you could use oxipng: https://github.com/shssoichiro/oxipng
Mitigating egress data transfer costs

For PNGs specifically oxipng is awesome. It even has Zopfli compression, which is compatible regular compression, but is ~30% smaller (but requires lots of CPU time to compute).
rustc performance improvement from rust 1.46 to 1.51

They do. ripgrep and fd extensively use parallelism, which is specifically enabled by Rust's safety guarantees. oxipng is also in the same boat.
