No; gimp's 75 is awful, although I often use it for the 500 pixel
preview images on www.fromoldbooks.org to save bandwidth and to give
instant gratification for dialup users.  Well, sooner gratification.

If I use anything below 90 or 93 in gimp I often use "smoothing" too,
which reduces the visible artefacts.

On the other hand you can easily get much smaller files with GIMP for
almost the same quality.
