This is not really a support request but more a general knowledge question about screengrabs and filesizes.
I was hunting around for a Site Icon for a site I'm building, in the form of a compass graphic. Found an example, free download, compass1-64x64.png. Downloaded it's 2kb - which you'd expect as it's only a very small image, intended as an icon.
But the web host I'm using recommends using a 16x16pixel image, so I resize it by opening it in Snagit 2019, re-sizing and then Save As - but then the filesize is 955kb!
So I'm curious as to what is behind that, what required all that extra data when making a smaller copy of a simple image.
