I found a file named Yiiframework.jpg having around 14 MB (biggest JPEG I've ever seen in my entire life! :]) on my hardrive, downloaded over three weeks ago therefore I don't remember from where and for what purpose I've downloaded it (I have CAutoMemoryErase behaviour turned on, which deletes entries older than two weeks from my brain-db! :]). It seems to be a complete diagram of Yii Framework structure and I must personally admit that it looks beautiful. Can someone out of Dev Team tell me, what tool was used to draw/generate it? Or maybe someone else on this forum can advice on some handy, free tool for drawing nice looking diagrams / algorithm?

edit: I am not one of the dev team but I think they used visual paradigm

How did you manage to create such a large JPEG file? :] Fourteen megabytes - the biggest in my entire life, as I mentioned. I saved it down to my HDD, opened in IrfanView and saved again under the same name. Even with 100% quality (never used in JPEGs) I got around 10 MB, that is four less (40% down). With 77% quality I got down to around 7 MB, half the original size.
I've seen bigger files, when talking about dimensions (around 10k pixels times 7k pixels in NASA weather maps and stars maps) and they were much smaller (a few MB) even if they were containing photos or complex graphics. This is very simple, vector graphics and shouldn't occupy that vast amount. Even for an updates version, which is far bigger in dimensions, when saved in PNG, it has only 3,7 MB.
But, again - I'm asking completely off-topic and just to feed my curiosity! ;]

It was just for fun. Don't take it too personally, please! :]
