Add support for writing lossless JPEGs

Reported by: melissa Owned by: melissa
Priority: minor Milestone: bio-formats-5.0
Component: bio-formats Severity: non-issue

Blocked By: Blocking:


Lossless JPEG allows for up to 16 bits per pixel; we should update JPEGWriter to write lossless JPEGs when 16-bit images are encountered.

However, since lossless JPEG is not supported by many applications, the default behavior should be to throw an exception when attempting to save a 16-bit JPEG. We can then have a method to toggle whether or not the writer should save 16-bit images (e.g. setAllow16BitLossless(boolean)).
