It depends on how big the size you're printing.

If the photos has the same resolutions and the same W & H but different file sizes, then the difference is in the compression setting. I believe there's not much of a different in printing quality.

If the photos has the same resolution but different W & H and different file sizes, than yes, qualities would be different if you're printing a larger size photo.

Here are some websites for basic digital photography if you would like to learn more:

The answer is "yes and no". The JPG format is a little different than TIFF or RAW files because of compression effects. A picture with a lot of detail (lots of leaves, etc.) will take more storage space than, say, a landscape without a lot of features.

I've recently experimented with larger format printing (13 X 19 or B size) and by "rezzing up" using Genuine Fractals have done some great pictures from a 2.6 megapixel camera.
