I use America Online (AOL). Why do some of the graphic images look blurred or distorted?
The older AOL caching system detects that an object is an image, it sends the image through
a compression manager on the AOL system network before caching it. Compression makes images
smaller for faster retrieval from the cache to members. Our system developers use a newer
proprietary version of JPEG compression. AOL members can individually disable AOL graphics
compression. Since our images are already compressed, we advise you disable further
compression using the preferences option of your AOL browser.
