Ok so I've been doing some serious skinning lately building everything in photoshp and then slicing up for various app skins etc.. to my dismay!! I have noticed a degradation when desktop backgrounds are applied, it appears that images are converted and turned into a low quality jpegs, a noticeable increase in noise and artifacting occurs.
Im not sure if this is a new thing or if its always been an issue in windows I guess my intense scrutiny of every pixel has driven me mad!!!
the images are resized so you need to click on them to notice.
Is there any way around this?
