    Hi,

    I read somewhere that before printing a digital picture it should be converted from jpeg to another format such as bmp as it will improve the quality of the image because there is no compression. Because of this the resulting print will be better.

    Is this correct or just a load of nonsence ?

    Sounds nonsense?!

    Going from jpeg to bmp won't get back any information already lost by the original compression.

    Yep BonusPrint is a bargain and good quality to boot. Used them twice now and very happy with the results.
