The image above is 58,655 bytes, it is 320×240 pixels with 256 colours and is in GIF format.
Using 90% “compression quality” LView Pro converted the image to a JPG of 31,012 bytes
Iterated Systems’ Fractal Imager 1.1 was used to compress it with “image quality” set to 90%.
The resulting image was 22,238 bytes (below right). If you can’t see the image below right you
may need the Fractal Viewer plug-in from the Altamira Group’s web site. Actually, this viewer
plug-in may no longer be available (the installer was called fvp16w32.exe).
Also, the viewer plug-in will likely only work in Internet Explorer 4 or earlier. When installing
the viewer plug-in use the destination directory “C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer”. It may
be possible to get the viewer plug-in to work in Firefox 3 by manually copying npfif.dll from
“C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\PlugIns” to “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\PlugIns”.
