Optimize images as soon as you copy them

As long as the Clop app is running, every time you copy an image to your clipboard, Clop will optimize it to the smallest possible size.

Clop uses the following utilities for optimizing different kinds of images:

  • pngquant for PNG
  • jpegoptim for JPEG
  • gifsicle for GIF

What's up with the hat in the icon?

Clop is the Romanian word for a traditional straw hat with a high crown and raised conical brim, worn more as an adorment in days of celebration.

We thought "Clipboard Optimizer" sounds a bit too technical and doesn't roll of the tongue as easily. We're Romanian ourselves and we thought it might be a good idea to keep the memory of our traditions from dying completely, with whatever little we can do.
