Hi Mark,

Oh, I get it.  All the same, if the act of re-encoding results in data loss,
I've never noticed it. I've taken a jpeg image and subjected it to 20 edits
and re-encodings, and was unable to detect any image degradation.
It's kind of counteintuitive, but you can try it for yourself.

I had been a believer in the proposition that multiple jpeg saves would
degrade an image, but after reading a notice to the contrary in one of the
trade mags, I did my own trials and now I save and resave jpegs which
aren't even maximum quality without any qualms.
