ImageOptim - Image Optimizer for Mac OS X

ImageOptim optimizes images — so they take up less disk space and load faster — by finding best compression parameters and by removing unnecessary comments and color profiles. It handles PNG, JPEG and GIF animations.
ImageOptim provides GUI for various optimisation tools: AdvPNG from AdvanceCOMP,OptiPNG, Pngcrush, JpegOptim, jpegtran from libjpeg, Gifsicle and optionally PNGOUT.

It's excellent for publishing images on the web (easily shrinks images “Saved for Web” in Photoshop) and also useful for making Mac and iPhone applications smaller.

I have the tendency to save quite a lot of wallpapers, so this'll come in handy when I need to save some disk space~
