I noticed that JPEG was used instead of PNG for the control panel screenshots. As you can see, the quality is bad, with nasty artifacts all around. Why not standardize on PNG, which has very good compression for these kinds of images and doesn't have the artifacts that are common on JPEG?
Yeah that was my bad (I edited the review)...JPGs would have been fine for those like JuideZ said but the compression was whacky since it came out of a Word doc which can mangle JPGs at times. I was in a bit of a rush and decided to not worry about it this time.
