RE: filmscanners: Re: Scanning problems

You may not see a difference but I only use jpeg when I need compression,
for the web. For manipulating I use bitmap or tiff, so I have as much
information as possible to start with. This is especially important when
using curves or levels in Photoshop to ensure smooth tones/avoid

Whether you can see any difference between this particular JPEG and a TIFF 
or not I would definitely not go back to this lab.  For a lab that 
specializes in digital not even to know that JPEG is a lossy format and 
needed you to explain it to them tells me that they don't really know much 
about digital.  Since this is such a basic piece of information it seems 
extremely likely that they don't know other important things.
