    I went through my entire Xenforo directory today and optimized every PNG image, though many were optimized to there maximum there were some that were able to be optimized almost 90% reducing there size from 40kb down to 1.9kb, which is Huge, my Forum load times drastically increased after doing this, and I think it would be a good idea to optimize all the images again.

    Capture.PNG
    This is just the most drastic of all the optimizations i did today, after optimizing the images look exactly the same on the live site as they did prior.

    Worth noting: I believe only one of the listed images is still used (timed-message.png). The others have been superseded and aren't used by default.

    I just use gimp, and change the quality down a couple percent.

    It reduces the file size greatly.

    There is also Smush It. Also after running GTmetrix it will show you which images files need to be optimized and you can download right from there.
