JPEG isn't always the best option when saving images. If you have a graphic with a few solid colors, and lots of text, you can usually use a fraction of the space with a gif that you would have used with a jpeg. It depends on the image though.

As for your problem, have you tried just blurring it? It would help if you put a link to the picture you are trying to work on. Also, if you do blur it, make the background of the image the same color as the background on your site before you blur it. That will make the faded colors at the edges match better with the background blend better and not look like the image is taken from somewhere else.

Well, not sure what you are talking about I will try to help.
1. make a selection of the stuff you want to be smooth
2. go to channeles, make a new channel. deselect the selection
3. adjust gausian (spelling) blur to about 5-8
4. then go to Levels. there you will see 3 text boxes. try changing in the 1st and the 3rd one the numbers. try 170 and 200. try it out till you get the good look.
5. when you are done it, go to channeles and select the channel you just edited.
6. return to layers, inverse the selection (Ctrl+Shift+I) and press delete. The image may be some a bit smaller and some things may be removed due to that the selection became smaller.

Good Luck.
