And while we are at it, I discovered that pre 2.7, (but I don't know
which version) exported some PNGs that were *enormous*. Simple
screenshots were over 1 meg. I realised that exporting seemed s l o w
but hadn't noticed the file sizes. It wasn't until I was having a
clear-out that I found hundreds of monster screenshots lurking on my
disk. They seemed OK in terms of displaying, but what was going on, I
have no idea.
I would imagine it would be quite a challenge to add so much stuff to
an image without corrupting it completely - unless it was some weird
parallel universe anti matter anti compression algorithm collision.
Somewhere out there my doppelganger is scratching his head wondering
why his PNGs are so absurdly *small*. Oh dear. This flight of fantasy
doesn't bode well for my productivity today.....
