Hello all,

I have performed more image optimisation on the forum images, including the templates, the main images and also the smilies. This reduced their filesize by at least 50%, but some by up to 80%. I hope this will help speed up the forum for users with slow broadband / dial-up.

Nope, just saving the images with an optimised colour palette. gZip is already enabled on the forum.

Will this lower the quality of any of the pictures?

Image uploader pictures are unaffected. Its only template images affected. They have already been done so if you don't notice any difference, no :)

I basically lowered the number of colours used on the images till such a point where it started to degrade the looks, then put it up a few colours from that point to keep the look the same but the file size down.
