    jpg Compression [Does LR re-compress a JPG when it is edited and saved?]

    rcroon Level 1

      When editing a jpg and then re-saving it, some applications do the compression all over again resulting in a loss of data.

      I was told that Photoshop (recent editions) do not recompress a jpg after editing.

      I have not been able to find out if Lightroom CC -Desktop edition recompresses a jpg when it is edited and then saved.

      Anyone have info on this?


      Does anyone convert their jpg's to tif or DNG (or something else) before doing any work in order to avoid this?
