Share for Development: Better compression for PNG assets
When downloading PNG assets from the Design Specs link, we always run them through an optimizer like TinyPNG to reduce size even further. It would be great if the PNGs were already optimized so the team could skip this extra step.

Add options to reduce file size PNG and JPG files using lossless and lossy compression options.
Many people I know export their assets and then optimize them via tools like https://tinypng.com/ or https://imageoptim.com/mac. They strip metadata and use libraries like Zoplif, PNGCrush or PNGOUT to perform compression and minimize file size. This would help making exported assets production ready and save time.
I've found that even when optimizing PNGs through TinyPNG, then downloading the file - the file size increases. I had an optimized 770KB PNG that when downloaded from the shared link was increased to 2.4MB.
