When creating JPEG files to be included in PDFs for the WWW, one should
consider size. I was wondering which is better:

1) scaling down a 3000x2000 image to 1500x1000 an then saving as JPEG on a
good quality setting, or

2) saving the 3000x2000 image as JPEG on a lower quality setting to match
option 1)'s final filesize.

Let's say for arguments sake that the document is for screen viewing, so the
image is not `blown up' beyond 1500x1000.
