I'm sick of people mistreating their waifus by compressing them into hackish formats like PNG or JPG.

She deserves better.

You're a moron. It doesn't become worse just sitting there, it only loses shit when you transfer from drive to drive and you still have to do a shitton of that for there to be any noticable loss. Saving things in PNG is just stupid as it takes up more space than it needs and it's meant for simple shit like pixel art, not a picture of your waifu.

Typo? You meant Giraffecal Interchange Format.
>>
>>100170020
It's pronounced with a soft g only if you pronounce the acronoym with merely one syllable as it is a regular word.

You pronounce it with a "hard g" if you say out every single letter, like many other acronyms.

It is entirely up to your own interpretation of what you want to choose here.

It's a minor issue which can be ignored so I'm not giving a fuck about it.

However, this is 101 of computer knowledge and languages. You should just feel bad.
>>
>>100170301
It's "Jif" and it will always be "jif". When you're the developer of the format, you can choose how you pronounce it. Until then, you have to go with what the creator wants.

That argument is retarded. English has no pronunciation rules, everything is pronounced however some arbitrary conditions caused the word to be pronounced in a certain way. Just changing a letter would probably change the sound completely simply because it'd become another word.

something like

PNGs take up more bytes because they're like GIFs on steroids - they are lossless.

JPGs have better compression, but the saving parameters can be adjusted to have no compression. JPGs "age" like any other digital data. It doesn't. Artifacts can be dealt with.

The letter G has both uses:

He chose superior G as in Gin for GIF.

I rest my case.
>>
>>100169387
>it only loses shit when you transfer from drive to drive
No, it loses detail when you load and resave it multiple times. However, with current software technologies, that shouldn't be a problem anymore. Just set your quality to 90-95 and the lossy part of saving it won't creep in.
>>
>>100180599

no, even 100% quality is not lossless. and it's fuckhuge anyway, might as well use png in those situations.
