    I suggest read the manual more carefully. And remember, JPEG is already compressed. To compress it even further, reduce the image quality / increase compression when saving.

    Do you know what 'flatten the image' means? Read more here: http://wiki.gimp.org/gimp/
    If still blur I suggest a trip to the next library for a basic guide into digital image editing. No point using a powerful tool without the basic knowledge.

    Sure, for those who know how to make use of it. The same with any sports car: worth nothing in the hands of a beginner.

    u should really do some degree of research before asking here, even in this subforum. just a simple google search is faster than drafting ur question out and waiting for someone to reply.
    just my 2 cents worth, sorry if i sound unfriendly and unhelpful.
