Pity its not wide enough in itself to make for a good Wallpaper.

Maybe some tinkering with Photoshop helps.

Nice wallpapers, these and the one on the Appreciation page!

These are one of the most stunning Summer photos to date, so I think they'll make an excellent wallpaper for a Summer fan!


Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny!

Not all forums or image hosting sites take png format; someone who'd like to upload an image from the gallery and repost it should change it to jpeg first.

Or we have a "proprietary" policy instead of an open source.

Lol if your hosting don't allow widespread picture format like png switch to better one, pronto!

I use png for fanart because I can save it with the transparency intact, and it does not reduce quality around text.

I been using pgn for taking screencaps, because of my VLC settings, but I'll change to jpg after reading that png has bigger file size than jpg (no difference in quality).

Take a look at the difference in size for the wallpaper i made and yours : 700 Ko against 3.5 Mo.
All i'm saying is the size and the format are a restraint to the spread of the Summer Glau Wiki pictures and it could be detrimental on the long term. Because people on the net (not me and you) will not bother uploading a 3.5 Mo picture, given that not all sites and hosting sites allow such big pictures and/or format.

Side note : of course when i'm working on a fanart i use png format and turn it into jpg at the final step only.

Yes you are right. I was not taking the file size in consideration. I'll change that (if possible without reducing quality of the picture) from now on.

How? I tried this with the main banner by saving the png optimized to jpg in image ready" the filesize was reduced from 150kb to 28kb but there is still a problem with the text.

PNG:



JPG:



Edit it don't matter in this case same quality in jpg will have the same size.

I never noticed a problem with the text before but i rarely use some.

I tested with this pic :
chrisdvanne

psd file : 8 Mo
png file : 1.5 Mo
jpeg quality 10/12 : 350 Ko (max jpg quality = 750 Ko)

I saw no difference for in text size and quality; must depends on the text effects.

I tried to post an attached image to a comment on a web page using Disqus, a popular comment widget :


The image was relatively small but weight too much; of course i used another one but a casual user would not bother doing that.
