    I'm scanning photos to use in my flash movies, but want to save the scanned images in high quality images onto a cd. I have the images in photoshop each ~8MB. Which format is the best for preserving quality and color?

    A recommendation i got was to use .tiff ...is tiff a regular format used today for high quality images?

    Thanks

    Either TIF or Max Quality JPG would work great

    If you want to save for print then save as Tif. Remember to change the image mode to CMYK (print colors). If you are just backing up the images a loss less jpeg (no compression) will work fine.

    Thanks guys for your comments, one more thing if you can..

    Why is tiff so much larger than jpeg(at max quality)?
    ..and is there anything I can do to keep the jpeg as close to the orginal color in photoshop? - tiff seems to do a good job at that
