suggestion: allow uploading PNG images as profile picture
(currently only GIF and JPG allowed)
Ideas to improve Criticker and new feature requests, as well as announcements about new enhancements.
Why? The pictures are so small that the difference in quality would be imperceptible, but the file sizes would still be multiples more than a jpg
You are wrong. First of all, for non-photographic content, PNG files have both better image quality (lossless) AND significantly smaller file size than JPG.medium pizza wrote:The pictures are so small that the difference in quality would be imperceptible, but the file sizes would still be multiples more than a jpg
Secondly, you are confusing acceptable file types for uploading with storage on the server, as there might be a conversion involved.
Thirdly, currently GIFs are allowed. As PNGs are superior to GIFs in almost every aspect, you argument makes no sense.
There is no good reason to disallow PNG uploading. Especially if GIF uploading is allowed.
