Author Posts March 19, 2008 at 6:20 pm #200770 wiidudeMember i’ve been thinking… they should add more picture files, like .tif and .bmp. those are popular formats, but WordPress’s security guidelines are a little strict. they should improve the uploading.

That means the loading times for those images would be incredibly long compared to jpg’s. Use jpg for photos Use gif or png for graphic images (such as created with a paint program) March 20, 2008 at 8:10 pm #201041 wiidudeMember oh, now i see the cause of this. thanks!
