Convert to TIFF, flip, save as JPEG shouldn't leave you with a worse file
than when you started. But I'm not convinced merely flipping the JPEG would
either. Re-encoding *unchanged* data at the same compression setting gives
no additional loss. The question is whether flipping constitutes changing,
and I think it probably doesn't, but I don't know the JPEG spec well enough
to be sure. I am sure someone will.
