February 22, 2008, Newsletter Issue #52: BMP or TIF Photo Files

Tip of the Week

Since it is well known that compressing an image into a JPEG photo file does sacrifice some of the image resolution, you may sometimes want to avoid using this type of photo format. Keep in mind that JPEG files are quite popular and work well for many uses, but photos with images that are quite detailed and colorful may require another format. It is possible to save a photo image without compressing it. Two other types of photo files are BMP and TIF. If you use these types of photo files, the image may be better, but the storage space on your computer will be much greater since the original image will not be compressed.
