Improving the use of PNGs

I created a FAQ just to deal with all the PNG uploads I've been receiving. It should answer most of the questions that people have about using PNGs with Big Blue Saw. The most important thing to keep in mind is that a part made from a PNG isn't going to be as accurate as one made from a DXF.

Also, I realize that most people aren't going to read the instructions and will continue to upload files with antialiasing and transparency. So I've taken steps to correct Big Blue Saw's interpretation of these files. If you've tried uploading a PNG in the past couple days and have gotten lousy results, try again.
