The color is drab and it's hard to read the map.

mmm...it seems that I wasn't wrong when in april/june I said you that colors were are a problem. :-k
At that time you replied to me (and to others) that there wasn't a way to fix it, that was because the style of the map , etc etc and that you checked the map with colorblind filters. I decided to wait at that time...but now in beta some people is complaining again about the same thing (and you know i said you via PM that your colors are too washed imo)....anyways you have to find a way to fix it now. Fix it (and the name to change) and I'll be happy to quench this one. O:)

Come on natty, You have come this far. There is always a fix, you just need to find it.
What do you know about map making, bitch?

I don't currently have the time to redraw the map, so if the current image is not good enough I'm afraid there's no choice but to scrap it.

If you do not have the time now, can it not come out of beta till you do have the time to do it. Not sure how the foundry works in this situation. It would be a real shame if we lost this. I just love looking at it.

i'm not sure how natty made the image but i'm guessing it might be a very easy fix. simply take away the dark background and replace it with a lighter one.

You'd guess wrong.

Nope, that won't cut it.

The thing is, as long as I don't have the possibility to compress my own JPEG:s, I have no way of knowing how the image that ends up on the site will look like. So I'm expected to blindly balance the colours of the image so that both normal-sighted and colourblind people won't have any problems with it. Sorry but that's impossible to do.

jpg compression has nothing to do with the current problem of the map. the colours are washed out even on the png.

In any case if you want to emulate the CC compression, you have just to set it to 80% (btw it's an issue you know I'm working on), but as DiM said in this case the colors are the problem, not the compression.

Update it then. Btw i did my test on your last one, not the one you have on the OP.

Ok, set the compression to 80. What about the other settings? Subsampling, DCT method, Smoothing, optimization? I have no idea which settings lack uses.

while i'm not fond of how strong the colours are now, i'm pretty sure most people will prefer it over the old version:

I actually prefer the newer colours, it brings everything into focus. Without relinquishing to much of the grudge.
