The jpegtran utility performs lossless transformations on JPEG files, 
such as cropping on macrocell boundaries, rotating, transposing, and 
turning colour images to black and white.  (Your black and white scans 
were stored as colour images.)

I agree.

What does ?PEEK(43),PEEK(44),PEEK(45),PEEK(46) report?  Maybe the 
cartridge hides some of the memory from BASIC and reserves it for 
assembled object code?  3071 bytes is an odd figure; an unexpanded VIC 
has 3583 bytes free.
