Here's an the image from your test page converted to tiff using imagemagick and then saved as a jpeg using The Gimp.
I rated it not quite as bad as the Photoshop plugin but it could definitely be better. I also figured that it would be easy to fix. Unfortunately I no longer have access to a PC with Linux or a Windows compiler so I'm stuck until someone else can fix it or I get myself set up again. I guess a "bug" report to the ImageMagick folks may help.<- Back to my PhotoCD Software page.
