Compressing icon files

Post by wmjordan »

Nowadays the Windows system supports compressed bitmaps within icon files to keep the file size small, which is efficient when some icon files contain 256*256 32bit bitmaps.
Can PL create compressed icon files in the future?

I took a look on Wikipedia and the source code of PhotoLine right now.
It looks like the compressed icons are saved in PNG format.
PhotoLine does this, when an icon is 256 pixel size, automatically.

Oops, my fault.
I made a mistake.
My icon file had a size of 192*192 and a size of 128*128, which were not standard sizes and not compressed.
I resized the page size from 192*192 to 256*256 and removed the 128*128 size, the file was saved with compression.
