The latest RootsWeb Review has an interesting article about computer file formats. It discusses the pros and cons for choosing one format over another for backing up or archiving your electronic documents and photos. It also gives a good, concise review of the different graphics formats (jpg, png, tiff, psd, etc) that you find yourself having to choose among.
