PNG optimization is described in detail in the PNG-Tech article "A guide to PNG optimization"

The idea of running multiple compression trials with different PNG filters and zlib parameters is inspired from the pngcrush program by Glenn Randers-Pehrson.
The idea of performing lossless image reductions is inspired from the pngrewrite program by Jason Summers.
