Nice! I knew someone smart would have done this!

I’m on my phone right now so I can’t check your source.

  • Does it optimise by re-using colours in a CLUT (colour lookup table)?
  • Does it have a kind of RLE (run length encoding) where a stretch of two or more pixels the same colour are made into a single long element?

Those concepts are used to optimise the file size of GIFs. JPGs I don’t know. They’re more mysterious to me.

It doesn't have any optimization really, I might go back to it and update it, those are some good ideas.
