PNGs Out.

Until today i’d been using the Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format for most of the images i include in this blog, as (being lossless) they look better than JPGs and GIFs. Sadly the price to pay for this image quality is a larger filesize – often much larger – even when compressing them using PNGOUT, so i’ve decided to stick to JPGs from now on. The images might not look quite as good but i’m afraid the 70% reduction in filesize wins hands-down.
