Hi Salvatore,

I've been trying to hotlink my images to APOD's Starship Asterisk, but they keep getting taken down because of the draconian 'no images over 400 kb' rule. The thing is: The image I uploaded was 313 kb. But if I go to that image, right click and download it, it balloons to over 500 kb. How can that be? This isn't the first time it's happened. Thanks for any input.
