i've been trying to find a way on how to save a file in jpeg without losing attributes, specifically the color quality, here is a sample of my work that i saved in jpeg, the one in the left is the output when i save it which it should not be like that, the one in the right is what it should really look like,,, i know lots of people in this forum can help me,,, thanks
Hello Mark; I do very little raster work, and there are people that can give you advice that come to the forum. but Jpeg is a format that I don't use. Why not try "PNG"? But the reason for the post is to say that the white on the yellow would read better if you put a black out line around it.
My Thoughts George
I think color shift in the jpg export is probably due to color management settings.
If you're running Vista or Win 7 try setting the default color management settings highlighted below.
Hope it helps

Maybe lessen the compression and smoothing?

I agree that this image is particularly suited for 8-bit PNG.
Goodness you sure got folks stirred up, didn't you?
Jpegs can look just fine and there are times they're preferable to pngs. So use whichever works for your final application, and don't let yourself get dragged off on a tangent.
Did you resize the graphic when you exported it? The biggest problem I see with your jpg is it's fuzzy along with the color shift, which makes me ask the question. For optimal results the general method is to convert to the proper color space if necessary, resize to the final output size, then apply sharpening, and only then save as a jpg. That's true no matter what program you're using.
Some software lets you combine steps, like sharpening as you downsize, but the quality of automated solutions can vary. Software's good, but it's no mindreader - in the end you have to trust your eye to see if it's acceptable and tweak the controls if it isn't. For example, Adobe gives you more than one sharpening method, and you can really see the difference if you guess wrong.
hey guys, i've just read your suggestions and will try them all, i'll let you know the results when i'm done, thanks to you all,
