Keep going Joe - your're doing fine.

We all learn by our mistakes so don't worry about cocking things up now and again - we all do it!

If you think its tough up in the Northern climes where these dreaded machines were invented, spare a thought for all of us downunder!!..trying to figure all of this jargon out here.

Ahoy David,


In computing (bword://!!ARV6FUJ2JP,computing/), JPEG (pronounced jay-peg) is a commonly used standard method of lossy compression (bword://!!ARV6FUJ2JP,lossy%20compression/) for photographic images. The file format (bword://!!ARV6FUJ2JP,file%20format/) which employs this compression is commonly also called JPEG; the most common file extensions (bword://!!ARV6FUJ2JP,file%20extension/) for this format are .jpeg, .jfif, .jpg, .JPG, or .JPE although .jpg is the most common on all platforms.
