Pngnq is a tool for quantizing 32-bit RGBA PNG images to 8-bit RGBA pallete PNG. It’s is an adaptation by Stuart Coyle of Greg Roelf’s pnqquant. While pngquant uses a median cut algorithm, Pngnq uses Anthony Dekker’s neuquant algorithm (http://members.ozemail.com.au/~dekker/NEUQUANT.HTML), generally resulting in better looking results than pngquant.
