For some reasons this image could not be compressed without getting jpeg artifacts. This is a bit against my expectations as the big rectangular areas should compress quite nicely.



Interesting. JPEG is pretty bad at defining sharp differences between colors, since it only writes a color bit for every four pixels, then blends them together.
