Program uses 32 bpp when it only needs 8
Program stores thumbnail images in RGBA format when it only needs a greyscale (Y) channel. There's some code in place to convert to a greyscale image, but it isn't called. This would be a 75% improvement in the algorithm's run speed/reduce memory/etc.
Look into it.
