Re: Not sure what to make of difference test to test for JPEG artifacts

So we are in agreement on this, correct? Highest quality JPEG for prints, but is not absolutely lossless?

No, not lossless... but very good at selecting which parts to lose.

But I would like to know what test I can do that will display if there are any changes at all. As we have discussed, it is impossible to detect "1" pixels from "0" pixels visually in a difference image that is nominally black. So what test will show these small differences? .

You want to see those tiny differences that don't otherwise show, even in high quality, even in Difference Mode? OK. Flatten the image.. then go to Image> Adjust> Equalise, and just watch.

Again, I'm not a PhotoShop expert--I usually don't use blend modes at all, so I'm fuzzy on the concept

Blending modes are extraordinarily powerful, and can do a great deal of work for you... one could say the image "processes itself," as it were.
