[thelist] compression / uncompression

I have a client who is an engineer, incredibly intelligent.  I have had 
to send large documents, videos, digital images, back/forth.  Frequently 
the pics he sends me are poor quality.  He has said several times that 
when you send pics through email, particularly ones that need to be 
compressed to be attached, that there are bytes lost or that they lose 
quality in the process.

Rather than argue (he is an engineer...) I just say that if it happens 
it's negligible.  So be it...  So the question is, Is there any validity 
to what he says?  Honestly I have not heard of this being a problem.
