(I also found all the ones on wubrg get about 50% savings, I forgot to tell @DialMforMara to turn up the compression level in GIMP when making them)

@DialMforMara @SliverQueen @bea @phildini @chr (Heck, if you want, just send me your pngs in a folder and I'll compress them for you. Watching the status bar run is so satisfying.
