Thanks for considering, Pierre.

Right, but because the slider for Quality doesn't jump to the estimated value when Use estimated original quality if possible is activated, users have no way of finding out what the compression ratio of the file is.

BTW: What's the difference between JPEG TrueColor (v1.1) and JPEG TrueColor (v1.2)?

OK, it's the JFIF specification version as specified in the APP0 marker segment.

They chose to publish another version, JFIF 1.01, which changed that part of the specification to follow the computer format convention. This was deemed to be a minor change since JFIF 1.0 had been circulated for only a short while and decoders which ignored the version number would still render similar images. The Independent JPEG Group (IJG) adopted JFIF version 1.01 for use in its public domain software, which eventually led to millions of images being published in this format. Later in 1992, user feedback led to the final version of JFIF, version 1.02, which supported additional thumbnail formats – most importantly including thumbnails stored in compressed format.
