Re: Shiny, shiny, shiny boots of leather - The New IFT I thought that I would sort of address this with a public service announcement even though I don't personally have any issues and I do enjoy seeing images in the thread. Diablo 2 screenshots are saved with very poorly optimized jpegs and you can cut their size down dramatically if you take a moment to resave them with proper jpeg compression before uploading. I noticed an easy quartering of the screenshot size with even a very high level jpeg compression, with web level compression you can get the files much much smaller. With Diablo 2's 256-colours a bitmap image should have a maximum of 800*600*1 byte ~= 467 K(1024)Bytes and yet many of my Diablo 2 jpeg screenshots are over 500 KB. ** I think that Diablo 2 uses a non-standard 256-colour palette or does a dynamic re-mapping of a large palette to 256-colours so it isn't actually that simple, but it serves as an example. I could also be very wrong with this, and Diablo 2 might actually use perfectly standard 256 colours.** Even for people with fast connections, optimizing images will make page loading more instantaneous. Summary: You can do yourself and your fellow forumites a favor and resave and/or crop your screenshots when posting them directly into the thread.
