Blog post: Is JPEG Good Enough for Archival Masters?

The Disruptive Library Technology Jester discusses the Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines (UPDIG) for image creators. And...yes...they are talking about JPEG, not JPEG2000. Alhough this is a document more appropriate for photographers, it is interesting to note that some believe that certain JPEG files can be archived as the "master file" rather than a TIFF. Given the specifications for that type of JPEG file, I wonder if people will remember that not all JPEG files are worthy of replacing TIFF images? Or will this information be misused?

Often the 'original' is actually a born digital direct camera captured JPEG, within the fast paced business of commercial photography!
