0Re-design 11 years ago There are some compression losses with jpg to make the files smaller. But Jpg is a great way to save files. You should be able to choose low, medium or high quality when you save. I don't know what you're using to save them.Also if the quality of the image coming from the camera is not good then your picture won't be any better.Saving as a Tiff file retains the best quality. There are no compression losses with tiff. but the files are large.
