Correct me if i'm wrong here however would not a PSD at say 50 mb have more info data [better quality/color etc ] than say a Jpeg at 5mb ???
It's more a case that every time a JPG is
-saved, it loses quality.
But it's all relative to what you're trying to achieve.
If you have a massive resolution image, and you're trying to print it on a postage stamp, it doesn't matter how lossy your save method is - it's still going to print crystal clear.
If, however, you're trying to print an A5 sized image at A4 (double the size), then retaining every ounce of quality is essential.
