Re: [BKARTS] File format for colour photocopy

>Once corrected, they must be
  saved as TIFF or PSD (Photoshop native format). If you save them as jpeg
  over jpeg, quality will decline, often drastically.

This is good information except the part about the native Photoshop file.

Unless a printer is using InDesign he will have to convert your PSD
file to something else in order to place it in a documnent - it is
never the best idea to have someone else "mess with" your files. I
suggest sticking with a TIFF file.
