Yesterday, I was surprised to receive a comment suggesting that I replace JPG images with PNGs. I was surprised because the images I had uploaded had been PNGs. Moreover, the originals were still on my computer and there were no JPGs. (So I know that I am not just going crazy and exporting to the wrong format. At least, if craziness it be, I'm sufficiently crazy to probably be asking you about pea soup despite believing I'm asking you about marigolds.)
Under what conditions does the site do this? I'm guessing it has to do with the size of the image but I'd like confirmation and to know the exact criteria.
The post which triggered the comment was this one. The images there now are PNGs because I uploaded three new images, reducing the scale to reduce the file size. These seem to have stayed PNGs which further suggests to me that size may be a key factor.
