A friend of mine told me that if I wanted to chase away certain animals, I should get an outdoor plastic owl (for squirrels) or hawk (for nuisance birds.) I never tried it because I found another way to get rid of the squirrels. (Found the way they were getting into my attic and plugged the hold with sheet steel.)
Well I've never had that issue here, but then again, I'm resizing a lot of images lately that I've been posting in my uke thread. I just presumed they'd be too big from both file size and image size perspectives so I make them about 350 for the biggest dimension and 50% quality. They look OK. I think it's more of a problem with camera images since they're usually quite large. I say that because the forum has never balked when I uploaded a screen capture.
Wife is a little depressed, her whole place is under quarantine. Her computer screwed up and they had to hand it to me thru the door.
I see that you displayed my snake with a PNG. I am assuming that uses less bites than JPG. Is that correct?
