All I can think of is to make sure your JPEG quality is set high. good luck.

Here's the same gradient saved in various JPG levels. From 0-12 in units of 2. So ... 0,2,4,6

Yeah, I got bored...
Also, no matter what your compression, if your Screen Settings are 16 instead of 32 bit, you'll get horrible banding no matter what you do. Who the heck uses 16-bit and digitally paints though.
