And as far as filesize goes: Unless the image has transparency I've been trying to save any .pngs I download as .jpgs, at whatever quality is just before noticable artifacting occurs (generally this is high in photoshop.) It cuts the filesizes down a ton.
Thanks. Yeah, and I don't know how much of a difference there is between the Photoshop and GIMP compression engines, but I could even cut some .jpgs down. Can you tell the difference between this image
? I can't, but the first one is 250kb instead of a megabyte. Or this:
The second one is a seventh of the size of the first.
Unfortunately, you do have to pay attention: the big Luna in the stars drawing
from a little while ago can't stand any compression because of the gradients. But while nobody wants to compress a thousand images manually, we could see some real bandwidth savings in the long haul by re-uploading compressed versions of some old images (although Dr Whooves should probably be turned off during that effort).
And I don't know if anybody still clicks them so they use bandwidth, but you could easily save some storage space by deleting most of the images tagged meme or macro without even having to get into the potential drama of retroactively deciding a drawing isn't good enough for bronibooru. If someone wants a screenshot with Impact on it, they can burn with ponibooru.
