Issues like described in this bug report are from my point of view an SERIOUS 

I know that Gilles is working towards an PNG workflow for digikam but as 
discussed earlier there might be a) people that want to stick to jpg for 
various reasons (online printing services, DVD player compatibility and such) 
and b) from my point of view digikam users must at least have the chance to 
KNOW when actions applied to there photos are lossy. From my point of view 
that is at the moment not clear or distigishable in digikam without knowing 
the internals of the program.

So my idea is to collect bug reports towards this topic (things in digikam 
happen lossy without giving the user enough feetback about this at least) in 
a meta bug.

I will do the job when the feetback here is possitive.

Again, for me this is realy important issue cause I don't want to store all my 
pictures with a program I can not trust - realizing one day that the picture 
qality was seriously descrised without informing me about. I would say 
improving digikams trustworthyness is the most important thing after fixing 

Btw I am in the process of building the tarballs for digikamimageplugins right
