Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1495) iOS default splash screen images take up several megabytes
Date Thu, 10 Jan 2013 00:46:12 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1495?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13549247#comment-13549247

Patrick Mueller commented on CB-1495:
-------------------------------------

I don't think converting to an indexed palette for those images will be helpful anyway.  The
dark eye area of the robot has all kinds of shading in it, and there's a shadow under the
robot also.  I think to create a indexed palette image of the robot, we need a robot with
no shading in it whatsoever, and then we can just plot that on top of gray backgrounds to
produce splash screens.  Perhaps something for later.

The images that you committed seem to be HUGELY smaller though, which is great!

> They should probably be recompressed to be a bit smaller; the gradients in the background
may be at issue.
