    If a thumbnail’s crop region extends beyond the borders of the original image, PTE saves a thumbnail in PNG format, even if the source is a JPEG.

    Over time, the disk and bandwidth penalties from silently converting JPEGs to PNGs can really add up. On just one of my client’s sites, this reached a staggering 4GB after just a couple years! Haha.

    I would love to see a configuration option for preserving image formats in such cases, perhaps using solid white for the void region (or a user-selected color).

    Thanks!
