Actually bumping up jpeg to 100% does not result in a lossless or even near
lossless bitmap. After considerable testing I have found that the 100%
setting does not give you the same quality jpeg that you would expect from a
similar setting in Photoshop or Debabilizer.

If you want the best possible looking bitmap then use the Lossless setting.
Beware that there is a hefty size penalty to pay for this. Jpegs are always

A note about bitmap compression: the nature of your image makes a big
difference in how it will appear after jpeg compression. An image with a lot
of noise (lots of changes in the image) will fare much better than one that
has soft gradients and subtle changes. This is especially true with Flash
