What is it?
By default SMF saves all thumbnails as PNGs when the setting "Use PNG for resized avatars" is enabled. This mods adds an extra setting to the Manage Attachments screen: "Always use JPG for thumbnails".

How does it work?
When this setting is enabled, thumbnails will be saved in JPG (quality 65) instead of a real-colour PNG. This makes the thumbnails a lot smaller, and thus a lot of disk space and data traffic is saved!

I recommend to delete all existing thumbnails after installing the mod and enabling the extra setting, so all existing thumbnails are regenerated and disk space gets freed.

Will this mod affect the quality of the actual attachments or avatars?
No, it won't effect either of them.

I don't see the extra setting?
You're likely not to use the English or Dutch language pack, or an UTF version of either of them. Open the file /Themes/default/Modifications.YOURLANGUAGE.php, and add the following line just above ?>:

$txt['attachmentThumbnailsJPG'] = 'Always use JPG for thumbnails';
