file types

A general question, that has caused problems with my icons lately-
I used to use .jpg files, set to 300 or 72 pix/inch, to save my icons for uploading.
Lately, in making banners for one of my icontest communities I noticed several people using .png files instead. So I tried it, .png 300 & 72 pix/inch, and it greatly improved the display quality of my icons. Now, is it just me noticing .jpg problems, or is it that way for everybody? What about putting graphics/icons on sites that want only .jpg? Is there any way to improve the saved quality of .jpgs?
I use PSP8 if that makes any difference.
