I unfortunately converted an image that was orginally in jpeg format into gif. format, and now the resulted image is a little distorted and altered. Of course I didnt keep the original jpeg image which i am now regretting ;o( The question I have is would it be possible to convert the gif image I currently have, back into its original jpeg to keep its original appearance? I know it is a bit of a long shot, but figured I would try on here anyway... Am enclosing the image. If not, maybe you know of a way to improve the picture quality. It was taken from the http://www.sophieellisbextor.net site which of course has been taken offline, so I can't get hold of the image again :o(
Thanks again guys,

There are some tricks, but not many. As soon as you go from jpeg to gif, you've lost all those colors that your jpeg holds. You now have to deal with whatever the parameters you have created for how many colors are in your gif.
You can go into photoshop (or another program, I'm unsure how to do it, but it has to be similiar), open up the file. Convert the color from the 'indexed color' which is the gif, to RGB... and then try and blur the image very slightly (guassian blur, setting of 0.1 to 0.5)... this may make the 'blending' of colors back to what it used to be... but it won't get your colors back. Sorry:(

...and, finally, I think I got a good one here:) Sorry if I am not supposed to keep uploading these Moderators -- I just kept finding them!! I'm done now...
You are so very nice trying to find those for me :o) I actually have all of those images stored. They are seen pretty much everywhere on the sites for this singer.
The original image I posted has a kind of different swept over colour look to it. I do have a diferent copy of the exact picture, but it looks different.
Would anyone know what photo effect the original has, as I am thinking maybe it is possible to create the same faded background look with the one I have? Enclosing this in attachment.
In the meantime, I have tried asking nicely to the owners of the site if they will send me a copy of the pic, but as yet they have not replied ;o(
Be great if anyone could help, or bumps into the same pic anywhere...
Thanks again guys!

Looks like the same picture to me. The "original is just sized larger and has a lower opacity set on it when they saved it. The opacity gives it the "washed out" look.

What program are you using?
