there isn't anything wrong with the jpeg :-\...

Comparison 1
Comparison 2

Did you load up your own image, already saved as jpeg, and then just re-save as png and gif? If so, that's why you don't notice a difference. The compression already happened.

jpeg uses a technique called lossy compression to reduce the file size. It's called lossy because integrity is actually lost in the process of compression. This means pixels might not be where they were before, or may change color, to reduce the complexity of the image, thereby decreasing filesize. This is bad for pixel art, or virtually anything that isn't a high-resolution photograph.

png on the other hand uses lossless compression. The algorithm attempts to reduce filesize only by using means that do not affect the fidelity of the original, raw data.
I'm pretty sure I had a psd file (I know I had one) and I saved that as gif, png, and jpeg. And I don't see any difference. I also knew that png used lossless but I didn't pay much attention, so I'll take the psd file and save it as jpeg, png and gif and see what happens.

gif and png keeps the pixels in tact, and jpeg screws all the pixels up so never save as jpg. You shouldn't give up so early you just started the thread today. :-\
It screws up all the pixels? Here is a png: And here is a gif: And last but not least a jpeg/jpg:


OMFG!!!! I guess my old pixel program messed 'em up, but still they all look the same, there isn't anything wrong with the jpeg :-\...

It needs arms.
The reason it doesn't have arms is cause I'm following a (template) and it doesn't have arms but I'll try to make some.

Mustache is a bit blocky, need to fix the AA

Hope ya like it!


Here is the png image: (Tell me if I need to use gif)

And here is the base I used:

And I still don't see any difference between the jpeg and png, but thats fine for me
