Actually, you see the jpeg artifacts clearly in all
channels and the picture itself. Nevertheless, it is
the clearest in the blue channel, followed by the red
with green showing the least artifacts. The reason why
green probably shows the least artifacts is because
JPEG stores the data in YCbCr with Cb and Cr
downsampled by 2 (-> 1/4 the data points compared to
Y). The reason why you see more artifact in the blue
channel then the red channel might be what you have
mentioned in your message. Not really sure about that,
