Q: Change ploticus gallery from GIF to PNG?
- The ploticus web site, gallery and examples will soon be revisited and
hopefully improved, perhaps over the next 6 months.
I am wondering if this would be a good time to make all of the images on
the site PNG. PNGs will give a substantial savings in size over the
pseudo-GIFs that are currently used.
Not too long ago browser support was an issue, but my impression is that
most people are now using PNG-enabled browser versions, and that these
browsers do a good job of displaying PNG quickly and accurately.
The software support for generating pseudo-GIFs would not be affected.
Note: ploticus home page is moving to http://ploticus.sourceforge.net !
Please access that location from now on!
