I've noticed that every time I save an image in GIMP as JPG the quality
slider bar defaults to 85. Even though I keep changing it to 75. If this
numeric value is a Photoshop equivalent like other GIMP features, then 85
is probably a wasted effort. The research* I'm aware of* (note emphasis)
says that the quality in JPG images saved at a level above 75 is
"theoretical." In other words, the increased quality is there in technical
terms, but imperceptible to the human eye. Comments?
