That's not good for graphics artists like me, TS and Twinx (plus all the others). Save As GIF Now!!!

P.S. Or BMP or PSD or TIFF or PICT or (the list goes on)

I'd never thought I'd see the day where a jpeg would become a threat...

Well... Even though that's there, I'll still use Jpeg's since they're small and look much nicer than .Gif (Since they're (The gif) on a limited pallate). I tend to use Gif's for Transparancies, which sucks because drop shadow's wont work, and when you use PNG for preservation of that drop shadow, it doesnt appear right in IE. :rolleyes:
