Nicole,

My only thought on the use of jpeg/jpg files for graphics is this:
"Jpegs are great compact image files, however, they achieve that size
through compression. Compression will cost you quality in your image.
If you can afford the loss in high end quality, then go for it!"

Don't misunderstand... jpegs are amazing, and my preferred format for
graphics, but they still lose some quality along the way.

Hi all,

I'm currently working on a user manual and am experimenting with
different graphics file types. I'm creating my main document in Word.
Ideally, I'd like to embed my graphics in the document, but since
bitmaps and some other graphics file types are notorious for bloating
file sizes, I'm avoiding them like the plague. Anyway, I started playing
around with j-pegs and noticed that resulting file sizes were
comparatively small. Is there any reason why this wouldn't be an okay
file type to use? Would you guys have any other suggestions?

Muchos gracias,
Nicole
