 Replying to [comment:4 dnewton]:
 > I've been doing [https://github.com/nwtn/image-resize-tests a bunch of
 tests] <snip> Basically, when the images are resized there's some
 smoothing/aliasing that happens, which results in colours that weren't in
 the original. More colours = bigger file size.

 Thanks for the detailed testing!

 While I can see how dithered images could look moderately better, I'd tend
 to think the more expected behavior from users would be to maintain bit-
 depth where we can. Do you have some examples of images where maintaining
 bit-depth during resize is particularly undesirable?
