The beauty of that coin's obverse is that you can simply redo the image in
the manner you now to perceive to be better, then share it instantaneously
with anyone who has interest--or outright replace the old version, usually
with no one the wiser. I suffer the same feelings with some of my work, and
often post revised versions, or did when I was still on Photonet. Why, I
don't know, as hardly anyone bothered to comment.

But it still mainly boils down to practicalities of the display medium,
which for the vast majority is some sort of CRT. Few of these offer users
identical images to view. You see one thing while your audience might well
(often does) see something else. Close but no cigar, so why the angst?
