i too have found myself using pngs a lot more than jpgs and for the same reason. the image came in as a jpg though, i went ahead and worked with it as a jpg. however, i too would have preferred tackling it as a png file. my absolute first choice would be a tif but it was given in the problem that a tif was out.
