I suppose he was referring to the "color palette", and not the
physical image size. I guess that is why The Gimp limits png images to
256 colors when I saved it as Indexed (which then generates a color
palette). So I guess it is a standard issue with Index/Palette
images.... thus limit your colors, or don't use a palette.

I guess one change in FPImage (depending on how often this occurs
obviously), could be to default to UsePalette = False instead.
