Getting better-looking JPEGs on your WordPress site
As you may have noticed, uploading a JPEG to your WordPress site kicks off an automatic process in which the file is compressed about 80%. This is great for the run-of-the-mill blogger that consitutes WordPress’ bread-and-butter user. But for us artists? Not so much.
In our cases, we’ve already compressed the image to the degree that we’re comfortable with — and an additional compression on top of that can sometimes add artifacts that make our images look worse than we intended!
So how do you prevent this from happening? Philip M. “Frumph” Hofer, the creator of the ubiquitous webcomics theme Comic Easel, has a solution.
