Description Chris Wood 2005-10-11 23:03:27 UTC
If possible, PNGs should be compressed after they have been uploaded. They
should also be compressed when resized for an article.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-10-11 23:18:58 UTC
The PNG format is inherently compressed.
Comment 2 Chris Wood 2005-10-12 03:15:00 UTC
But there are different levels of compression...
Comment 3 Rob Church 2005-10-12 09:08:42 UTC
And the user ought to select the best possible compression for it. There isn't,
as far as I know, an easy way for us to create an even-more-compressed version
reliably on-the-fly, using the time and resources we have (consider, from page
request to page display).
