I once read that the more you work with your photos, the more broke down they get as far as the jpeg. Is this true? I was also wondering if this is why you always make a duplicate file? Any thoughts on this?
Yes, this is what I've heard about .jpg--I can't remember the technical reason for it. I save most of my photos in .tif, especially the ones I scan, since I ususally have to do some editing on them before I use them on layouts. But saving another copy of your photos on a disk or ext hd is always a good idea -- it hurts to lose them. Hope this helps.
Never heard of this and I'm storing all my photos in .jpg - and have a copy on a separate hard drive in case my computer breaks down...
But even if that were true, I never change my jpgs but work on the photos in the layout.
