I losslessly optimized the pictures in the static folder to save even more bandwidth and space, also making reddit load faster on slow connections.

Using: OptiPNG, AdvPNG, PNGOUT, PNGCrush and Jpegoptim.

If you are in doubt – just ask, I also like feedback.

Thanks for this pull request! Those are some really great improvements in file size. I think, after discussing this a bit internally, that it would be preferable to include such compression in the static file build process so that new images in the future are likewise compressed. Additionally, the images have changed a lot since this pull request was opened so I can't merge this as is (sorry, that's totally our bad).
