When I create an adjustmentlayer (curves for ex.), darken the area and use a mask to define it, PS does not keep the softness of the egdes if I save it as a jpg. 
M -> create a square -> create adjustment layer with curves -> make mask soft by 200px 
As soon as I save it (with layers alive) as a jpg, the result is a square with 0px softness. 

Any help?
