Actually, I was thinking of using instead (in place) .gif images with 256-colors (yields about 50% filesize savings) and will see if using a 16-color/grayscale .gif will reduce this any further. Worth a shot!

However, I will also try your new --jpeg-quality switch. "Whatever works best" is my motto...

Thanks again!
