Every time a jpeg is opened, it distorts and loses compression and will pixelate and degrade.
There is another thread about uploading pics to the ebsq art case, and this same thing happened... The image got sharpened, or grainy, or "pixelated"... And in that thread, as well as this one, I believe the same "solution" was offered up. But... am I missing something? If one simply uploads an image to *whatever* site, the image is not being "opened"... is it? It is certainly not being altered (as in edited). Are you saying a jpeg degrades simply from being ftp'd? I am just curious, because whenever this subject comes up about pics being grainy after uploading, someone always suggests the master copy thing as a solution.
