    Question Extensions?

    I am just starting to use GIMP to create and edit my pictures, and I've seen that if I save them as ".jpg" they get bury, but if I use ".png" they don't effect it. Does anyone know why ".jpg" makes my images bury? And what kind of extensions(ex. "jpg", "png", "gif", "bmp", .....) do you put your images under?

    .jpgs are compressed... that's why there is slight quality loss. If you look around the settings you might be able to adjust the amount of compression.

    .png is lossless. you can't get any better than 100%... unless you want added color on your picture.
