Experiments with 1-bit photos in RetroBoy https://f-droid.org/en/packages/se.embargo.retroboy/ on #android #theObservatory
This: https://solar.lowtechmagazine.com//2018/09/how-to-build-a-lowtech-website/ is permanently stuck in my head, but of course it doesn't list the dithering info. The article pops up in my mind once or twice a year and hijacks whatever I'm doing for a bit.
That lowtech article isn't the only piece worth reading on whether dithering is worth doing. I'm more interested in the artistic merits than power consumption, but this is a good read on size: https://endtimes.dev/why-you-should-dither-images/
And because this is *my* rabbit hole, I should add the counterpoint referenced in that article: https://www.simplethread.com/why-your-website-should-not-use-dithered-images/
And of course opguides weighs in here: https://opguides.info/posts/lowbandwidthimages/
Opguides is a brilliant site on tons of different topics. You should only look at it if you have half a day for aimless reading of exceptionally high quality writing.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
