Short answer: you can't always get what you want.
Long answer: you *can*, almost, but you need to know what you're doing.
I highly recommend a careful reading of the latest edition of "Real World
PhotoShop", by two guys who really know their stuff. Even if you never
use Adobe PhotoShop, I consider this book required reading for anyone who
needs to get images online in the highest possible quality with the least
fuss. Authors David Blatner and Bruce Fraser; latest edition in print
is "Real World Photoshop 5"; "6" is due to be published in January 2001.
I still use "3", which I bought years ago. Publisher is Peachpit Press.
