What surprises me is that among the 60 files i have to work on, i succeed
with more than 40, and then i've met the problem. Another problem is
that with the rest of the files, even if i choose "Save As" option, i
cannot really save. Some options are off (like jpg), others are not
(Tiff, uncompressed, as i understand), but if i save to BPM or Tiff
i cannot export it to jpeg after (and jpeg are at the end of the road)...
Maybe i'll try to scan the photos again to jpeg or so.
