New format for database images (JPGs)

Thank you to everyone who has uploaded images (covers, back covers, etc) for releases in the database.

We've been storing images as PNG files for a while and the total size of the images had grown to 28GB. Yes, let me repeat that -- 28GB of images. That meant that we were very close to running out of space to store additional images.

So, I'm working on converting all of the images to high quality JPGs to save space. After running a bunch of tests, it appears that it should not degrade the quality of images already uploaded.

From now on, whatever type of image you upload will be converted to a 92% quality JPG.
