Hi !

Simple question for which I couldn't find an answer in the forum.

Is using JPG (at highest quality) instead of PNG a bad idea ?
At highest quality JPG/PNG look really similar, JPG is obvs wayy lighter, tho are the models insensible to how the two formats store data ?

Asking in Extract but this could apply to other stage(s) I think

We recommend against using jpg since jpg is a lossy format and the compression artifacts can affect your training.
