I recently learned how to do macros (actions) in Photoshop. This allowed me to simplify several of the common command sets I've been using to make CCP comics.
One of the first things I did with the newfound efficiency: convert all the PNG's in the archives to indexed colors. This has cut the file sizes by more than half. So at long last, the site can finally be declared modem friendly, though some comics are still over 200 kB.
