I wonder if it would be possible to get that changed, not just for this Web project but to make everything accessible for future generations to come.

The thumbnails are stored in format that hardly anyone uses (blanking on the name of it now).  In particular, there are no PHP libraries for reading it, even integrating GD, the popular and powerful image manipulation library.

I wish there were an option for selecting the thumbnail format, which included jpg and png (and the associated quality and size options).  Even if the database were bigger, it would allow much easier access to the thumbnails, without all the complications of re-creating thumbnails from somewhere else.
