Bug Description

The "Stalking Ocelot" is a great image, sadly it doesn't look the way it shoud because it had been compressed way too much.
Jpeg artifacts are clearly visible and gradients aren't smooth at all.
Some other wallpapers are also suffering from too much compression (it's less visible than on the ocelot) : Momjji Dream, Jardin Polar, Not Alone, Purple Dancers, Small flowers, The grass aint greener.

If this is about fitting the package on the live CD, would it be possible to make a ubuntu-wallpapers-hq package ?

Also, when getting the package source, I'm getting the same jpegs as in the "binary" package but would expect to have unaltered high quality images.

It would be nice to provide a way to download the higher quality versions directly from the appearances UI, which would store them in a local directory overriding the installed version.

We could offer the high quality wallpapers in -updates so they just replace the low quality ones?

The new wallpapers are awesome and it would be uber-cool to get highres images through an update.
Right now on 1920x1080 some images just look horrible.
