    Hi Dann,

    Thank you for sharing this!

    I will pass your comments to our QA and development teams for a further consideration.

    May not be possible or reasonable.  Indeed you probably don't want to do this.

    The first tweak for jpeg compression gives you a lot of bang for the buck.  But even zero compression still changes the image.

    If you need maximum quality for press work, you should be exporting either as PNG or as TIFF.  PNG is more readily understood, but doesn't store metadata.  TIFF has a zillion options. There aren't many programs that understand all the TIFF versions.  You send one to your printer first to see if he can open it.

    Thanks!  Agreed however some printers websites restrict to a hard ceiling [file size], like Costco.

    Upload your image to CompressOrDie.com  Play with it there.  Use a chunk of a file and make small prints to experiment cheaply.
