Unusable Image Compression Results

Compress Images: 81/100
44.6 KB total in images, target size = 36.5 KB - potential savings = 8.0 KB

RE: Unusable Image Compression Results
The savings for those images are just below the rounding threshold which means only a few bytes. The overall grade is based on the % of bytes that can be saved so it doesn't really impact the grade. I can tweak the UI to not show any where the savings are < 100 bytes.
