In a previous post I wrote, "Has anyone using other graphics programs
done a GIF-vs-JPG experiment like the one I described above?"

I just did a quick Google. To answer my own question... apparently the
GIF-vs-JPG issue has been covered in some detail in other venues,
including these two sites:

http://www.behindthecurtain.com/seattle99/images/gifvsjpeg.htm

http://graphicdesign.about.com/library/weekly/aa012998f.htm

Both show examples of photos and screenshots in GIF and JPG formats,
with file sizes noted. (Other sites out there give more detailed
explanations of the compression algorithms.)
