Printing: From JPEG or TIFF?

[Copy link]

Post time: 2013-5-14 07:37:37 |Show all posts
Is there any advantage in printing a TIFF image as opposed to a JPEG-fine image? I shoot as JPEG-fine then convert the 'keepers' to TIFF and,if necessary, work on them from there and save/print them as TIFF's.I am now wondering if there would be any disadvantage to converting the 'corrected' TIFF image back to JPEG-fine and print them from there.I know about RAW but let's leave that subject alone for now-this is a JPEG vs TIFF question.  thanks!  cb

when you are printing a tiff image vb.net, you get a rather high resolution image instead of blurry ones. i think this is the best advantage you can get. besides it would be easy to convert any formats to tiff.

'simply opening/closing a JPEG will not degrade the image but working on it and then saving the change(s) will degrade it; not so?' - That is correct. 'I am now wondering if there would be any disadvantage to converting the 'corrected' TIFF image back to JPEG-fine and print them from there' - yes there will be deterioration, since you are then saving to a compressed format ie throwing out some of the TIFF file info to reduce the size. Only convert back to JPEG if you need to drastically reduce the file size eg to send as an email attachment.

If you simply open a jpg, work with it, and then close without saving there will be no deterioration. Don't resave a .jpg though. I can't see that there would be any particular advantage in _printing_ from a tiff unless you are going to do some modifications to the file first. The tiff can be no better than equal to the original jpg image. If you plan to do any editing of your images, it would definitely make sense to convert to tiff and than modify the tiff files rather than working on jpgs.

Hi Jon-it has always been my understanding that simply opening/closing a JPEG will not degrade the image but working on it and then saving the change(s) will degrade it; not so? cb

TIFF (except TIFF with JPEG compression) is a lossless format, so saving an JPEG original in TIFF format doesn't deteriorate the image. If you save the TIFF image as a JPEG and later open the JPEG to print, it'll have one more generation of loss compared to the original. Whether or not you can see the deterioration, and whether or not it's significant to you are questions only you can answer.
