A more valid test is to compress the whole .tif file down so that
the resultant size is 1/7 of the uncompressed .tif file.
Then convert the jpeg file back to tiff (or png) and crop that
file. It isn't as valid of a test to be compressing 80x50
files - a lot of the file size in this file is jpeg overhead and the block
sizes in the vertical direction aren't a factor of 8.
That said, it sure is hard to see any difference between the
images you posted on the web site.
