oh yeah, i should have been more clear. Now that you and me and probably a few others have learned something new about JPG peculiarities, i was brainstorming how the user interface could be tweaked to avoid misleading associations. Above diagram was intended to depict a logarithmic scale for the quality value, where the numbers relate to the typical growth in file size . But a much better and simpler idea is to just use a number range from 1..13, similar to photoshop. I'll take that over to the developer's list. regards, peter  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Quality_comparison_jpg_vs_saveforweb.jpg _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
