Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-1495) iOS default splash screen images take up several megabytes
Date Mon, 15 Oct 2012 20:41:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-1495?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13476424#comment-13476424
] 

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

I agree with Jesse's comments on the m/l.  Gradients.  KILL.

Or ... I just tried using Acorn to save as a JPG (do they support JPEG?).  At 80% quality,
compressed to 134KB.  Looked pretty good to me!  

If they don't support JPEG, I wonder if switching from a 24-bit to 8-bit PNG would help. 
Looks like I can get that down to about 240KB, but ... artifact-y.

I'd vote to just kill the gradients.  Next point release (not 2.2).

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