that's why i said 'PSD,' not .gif or .jpg, which is what you get when 
you 'save for web'...

this has more to do with sharing PSD files than optimizing and 
posting images for inline viewing...  that's why i didn't talk about 
optimizing, since we all know that optimizing images for the web 
throws that stuff out...
