    egg - what you say may have implications for websites, I realise that, but for graphics I am not at all sure

    If you look at the page source it contains the following to draw the image:
    It's a data uri code. I don't even pretend to understand 1% of it but the image is within the page code and doesn't require a call to another external file.
    Egg, that that you are going is trading an HTML call to an image over one to an image. Both are of a similar size so the download time will be too. Data URIs (Base64 encoded) are larger than the original. Data URIs are not cached.

    Never simple, is it.

If your Post identifies a Xara software fault, please raise it directly with Magix --> support2.magix.com.
