Most genealogist now encounter digital images on a routine basis. Yet most of us don’t know how a JPEG file differs from a TIFF file and whether or not that difference is important. This presentation will provide you with a basic understanding of how images are digitized and will familiarize you with some of the fundamental characteristics of digital image files.
