jpeg6: Independent JPEG Group's JPEG software version 6b

Software to implement JPEG image compression and decompression. JPEG (pronounced 'jay-peg') is a standardized compression method for full-color and gray-scale images. JPEG is intended for compressing 'real-world' scenes; cartoons and other non-realistic images are not its strong suit. JPEG is lossy, however, on typical images of real-world scenes, very good compression levels can be obtained with no visible change, and amazingly high compression levels are possible if you can tolerate a low-quality image.
