comment Smush.It or similar lossless image shrinking with API
its only 150kb for the free version (500kb costs $5 per month). Wasn't aware of PunyPNG, so thank you for bringing it to attention. Using Google App Engine so local executables are a no-no.

The images are around 200-300kb. The API limits it to 150kb or requires payment. As this is for occasional use the pricing scheme isn't ideal.

comment How to use the domain of my old site to my new site?
Great advise, however remember to look before you leap, test it works by editing your local hosts file (/etc/hosts, %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, etc) and putting in the new domain/IP pair.
