Grue beat me to this, but this doesn't work for JPEG.  If you have a
text editor, you could create a document with say 1 header and 3
paragraphs.  Then you could edit paragraph #1 a thousand times, save
each time, and your header and other paragraphs remain identical.

However if you edit a portion of a JPEG a thousand times, and "save" a
thousand times, the whole of the image is going to take some major
punishment.  In this case instead of "saving" you are really
"reencoding".  Would you consider your text document saved if random
characters were transposed throughout?
