Small PNGs changed to jpgs when uploaded, even retroactively

Drew J 6 years ago 0

Hey! Recently, imgur started uploading all my pngs as jpegs (adding the jpeg artifacts) while leaving the file extension the same. This happens not only on small images (like http://i.imgur.com/9d6OZiu.png - you can see the lossiness, and it wasn't even close to 1MB) but also to OLDER images which were previously lossless after upload (such as http://i.imgur.com/HxIDdK0.png which was many months ago a 16KB file that uploaded lossless). What's the deal? How do I start uploading lossless PNGs again?
