Hi Mr Tinkles. I don't find jpeg very good for fine detail such as technical drawings, but it is sometimes passable if I use a facility that lets me choose the compression factor. For this I use Corel PhotoPaint, and when it asks me for the Quality Factor, I would use a figure less than 10, where 2 is best quality and 255 is worst.

cheers for the info . do you know if it works for paint shop pro seven? i have also seen this done by saving the picture as a viz. file extension but i have no idea what application created it.

Yes, for PSP7, choose "Export" then "JPEG Optimizer". Alter the slider depending on how much compression you want.

If you're using the Tech drawing program to create the jpg, try using the "Prt Scr" button (above insert),then pasting into PSP7. You can then save as a jpg and choose the options to optimise from the save dialog.
