in reply to BMP: Drawing or photograph?

I am not a computer vision expert. Here's how I would do it:

Load some representative target images into Mathematica or similar program and try out various filters. Start with transformations related to edge-detection or finding continous areas of colour and brightness. Visit http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/image-processing if you need help.

When you have found a filter or combination of filters that correctly recognise to a high confidence whether an image is suitable for JPEG compression or not, recreate them in Perl. Binding to various imaging toolkits written in C are available, so this shouldn't be too complicated. The filter (pipeline) simply returns a boolean, use PNG or JPEG output format accordingly.

[marto]: good morning all
[Corion]: Hi marto!
[Corion]: The fun show at $work continues, as The Big Project is now in its second week of frantic live-bugfixing and weekend releases where nobody knows what went live. Nothing has been tested anyway.
erix mutters cantankerously under his breath
Corion watches from the sidelines. Or rather, from behind, as my system only gets output from that process and my programs adhere strictly to the GIGO design principle.
[erix]: ah, that's nice to hear Corion :)
[Corion]: erix: Yeah, the sad thing is that all I can do is document things, so I can point fingers when the auditors come :-/
[Corion]: "I'm here to open tickets and point fingers. And I'm all out of tickets."
[erix]: didn't Sybase have pretty good auditing? :) (this is a vague memory)
[erix]: (culprits often are upstream of db of course)
