Second story of mine and again dealing with Sketch … So there is the new Sketch format since the release of 43.1 and now it is as if the Sketch file is a .ZIP file and it actually behaves like a .ZIP file. With some time spent and some tests I discovered the following workflow which will really MINIMIZE file size and help designers in their daily problems, especially files with many images are of interest here … so just give it a try (make sure you did a copy of your file before you start)

1. Better Zip = your friend!

2. Fixing damaged PNG files

3. Resize huge images

4. Optimizing PNG files with Pngyu

5. Back to BetterZip — Replace images

6. Save .SKETCH with BetterZip and be happy ; — )

Have fun and go buy you a coffee ; — )
