Current solar background's consume 33Mb. This a bit on the heavy side, especially on the Live CD which is over its image limit. Currently there are 4 different images (morning, noon, evening, night) sent out in 4 different sizes (4:3, 16:10, 5:4 and 8:3 for dual screen). What we could do is to send out just one 3200:1200 image and patch up gnome-desktop background handling to support cropping to the right aspect.

Did we run optipng on our backgrounds?
  optipng -o7 *.png
I remember this saving a few megabytes last time around.

We did and Martin and I have plans to clean up the background packages so the default one is much smaller and there is a larger extras package. He's waiting on me to fix some bugs in the artwork.
