Mediafire link to the files in question:
This may seem like a really lame question considering the file size of these two PNGs, but i do have my reasons for wanting as small a file size as possible. It would be great if i could figure out how to get them both (and many other like these) to be around 30kb. As it stands, one image is 193kb, and the other is only 33kb.
The images are almost exactly identical. It could just be my error. Maybe when i try to erase the background to alpha to make the image transparent in gimp i keep missing a pixel which drastically effects compression? File size differences in nearly identical images has popped up i few times now and I can’t think of anything that would make one of these files 6 times larger than the other.
Can any one help?
