Hi all.
I have the 7590 and was wondering that when I enter the pic in photoshop and save it as a tiff if I am actually gaining any better quality than from the jpg or am I just pi$$ing in the wind, so to speak.
Thanks guyz and galz:-)

You can't get better quality because the information saved with the jpg format cannot be optimized!!

No, you're not gaining quality, but on the other hand, you're not losing quality by saving to a "lossy" compressed format like .jpeg . Every time you make an adjustment and resave in .jpeg you're losing quality. Always save your photoshop or Elements modified images as a different file under a new file name and preserve the original.

Greetings,

Nope, not going to gain any quality. Rather, a digital file is like a negative, once you have processed it (given a value to each pixel) you can't really change it too much. If the information is there you can work with it. If it isn't then you can't - same as a negative. Saving it to a lossless TIFF is a good idea, though, as you can then use that file to do your copies or edits etc. But, improve on quality, no.

Talk to you soon,
