Re: filmscanners: File format



Without wishing to add to you "pain" ;-),  I was surprised to determine 
that this exact situation (the "leveling" of the compression) occurs 
much sooner than I expected.  You will probably have noted that via my 
recent posting to that effect, where I monitored file sizes after 
repeated Jpeg compression.

It seems the algorithm rather rapidly reaches the point of "no further 
benefit" and stabilizes the file size, and likely also the amount of 
change in the pixel structure.
