I wonder if it would be possible to create
.256 thumbs when the source image is a
PNG file - to natively support transparency?
From tricking the Mac app into believing a file is a .jpg (just changed the extension, no type check here obviously) I didn’t notice adverse effects when using a
.PNG thumb. It displayed fine - including transparency
*. OK, the thumb’s size is bigger by ca. 20 KB. Would this be of concern - especially when
PNG thumbs were limited to
PNG source files?
*Well, I couldn’t actually see that but then that’s what I wanted.
