I used 300dpi png files for an album. I'm uploading the album to My Memories Suite's printing services and notice that the files uploaded all have .jpg extensions. Is MMS automatically converting the png files? If yes, should I have just created the album using jpg images in the first place?

The PNG files used in MMS are because elements have transparency. This allows essentially "square" or "rectangle" files to really be ribbons, flowers, etc. Once you save your layout, the entire page is "flattened" and becomes a JPG file. This allows it to be printed flat.

I hope that all made sense lol

In essence Pearson100 - yes you should probably have just done that [frown]  MMS is flattening your pngs and converting them to jpgs for printing.

All programs that flatten your page will convert your files into the format you save them. So photoshop, MMS, etc will take whatever files you have and save it as a jpeg for print because that is what most photo book printers use as a printing format. So as Rebekah mentioned you still need to use the PNG files to create your page. If you used jpeg files for everything you would have square boxes around all your embellishments.

However if you imported your completed pages into the software as PNG files and then sent them to print, yes you should have just used jpeg files.

Does that make sense?
