Which file type is best?
JPEG: JPEGs are well suited for most
applications. They are particularly useful in
PowerPoint Presentations or web sites,
where file size is a concern.
TIFF: Theses are preferred if you ever
intend to print the image. Bear in mind that
if you save it as a TIFF and want to post the
file to the web it will have to be converted
to a JPEG.
PICT: These are common to the Macintosh
platform. Recently they have become less
popular.
KDC: This is Kodak's proprietary file
format. Do not select this option, as these
files are not common. FlashPix is another
image file format that is not well supported.
Do not select this option.
