Red colour pixelation - requires higher quality than normal. Why?


New Member
I've had for quite some time now a frustrating problem as a web designer - the need to save an image (nav button for example) at a much higher quality when it contains the colour red.

Normally I will save a button at a quality of (using 'save for web') of around 45 to a max of 55, but with, for eg, a red button with black text, the quality needs to be pushed up further to around 60 plus to remove pixelation.

There seems little info on this out there. Why is this happening & is there any way round it?
