I was merely relating what the summary was. But, I think you fail to understand the point - the summary said that the shading is impossible to reproduce accurately on small items, a reduced color image simply is an official statement of "yeah, we know it's flawed in that it cannot be accurately reduced, so here's a substitute" It is like you got a car that is leaking oil at a rate of a quart a week and someone's "fix" for it is to give you a coupon for 4 free cases of oil. I guess that's technically a "fix", hope your rod bearings stand up to it, though.
