Work from .jpg.
“All digital files are made up of information. This is the biggest difference between what is virtual and what is physical. .jpg is an acknowledgment of the digital information that creates what we view as an image. Beyond just acknowledging the image information, the code is manifested in the physical world in several different non-photographic forms. These non-photographic representations of a image’s digital information draw attention to the sheer volume of information needed to create these image files. .jpg also redefines the parameters of a ‘photograph’. None of the output is arranged as what is commonly recognized as a photograph; but at it’s core, what the audience experiences is derived from an image captured with a camera.” – Jacob Riddle
