  • Comment: This file seems to be smaller than the original upload, and has slightly different colours. What is "dithering"? J Milburn (talk) 18:08, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
    • I think they actually mean color halftoning. Whoever created the new version actually did a pretty good job of removing the halftoning without losing detail, IMO. Kaldari (talk) 18:48, 12 January 2012 (UTC)
