When you upload files to Photoshop.com, they are uncompressed and untouched in anyway. The full file is uploaded without change. However, a copy of the file is created for display on the web page. This copy has been reduced in size to have the longer dimension be 1024. It has also been converted from the original format to JPEG (if it was not JPEG already). If the file was originally in RAW, then there is an enormous quality loss, but it has to do with going from 16- to 8-bit.

If you download the file from your account, you will be redownloading your same, unmodified image.
Transfers files smaller than 1024 px in. Jpg. Png and they are subjected to compression, before this there was, as I mentioned. I am unable to accept the fact of compression so I decided that I would not already thrown for more pictures and I found another place ... Thanks.

Again, your files are not being compressed. Perhaps we are not actually talking about compression, as you would not be able to tell the images are compressed just by looking at them on a web page. Would you be able to post a copy of an "uncompressed" file and a screen shot of the "compressed" file to show the difference?
