I tried saving a GIF in W7 Paint once and I still had the same dithering disaster that I had in Windows 98, 2000 and XP. Same for JPEGs. And yes I use PNGs now.

Yep, PNG uses zlib compression, which is lossless.

I finally cleared my sig after 4 years you're happy now?

PNGs are just about the best thing ever when it comes to images. Now if only you could do APNGs in Gimp without having to rip your arm off..

Kinda a shame animated PNG (APNG or MNG) isn't as widely supported as GIF. That would successfully replace it, given time.

In fact, until recently, PNG alone was still not as widely supported as GIF/JPG. For example, when I first used XP, it took several Windows updates before M$ Paint finally gives me an option to save as PNG and IIRC, IE6 didn't even support PNG transparency.
