That's most likely because I feed my .jpgs through a lossless optimizer
before uploading them, and I don't remember other peoples' doing that.
PNG supports transparency and is fully lossless, unlike JPEG which has lossy compression even at the lowest compression setting. It's not that noticeable though, since it was optimized to discard information the human eye is less likely to get, but it can sometimes get in the way of things, like in this manipulation
, where it discarded part of the shadow I put under the green text on the green background, making it harder to read.
