This is not true, or at least not true in just any case. Look at the these two snapshots http://www.secarica.ro/misc/png_test.png http://www.secarica.ro/misc/png_test_word_to_paint.png The png_test_word_to_paint.png is the result of this: I opened a blank Word document (Office 2003) I dragged the file test.png onto it I saved the document without closing I wrote something I closed the document with save I opened the document and wrote something I closed the document with save I opened the document I copied the image in clipboard I opened Paint and pasted the clipboard there I saved the image from Paint as .png Ok, the saved image has fewer colors (so it is no longer the perfect original), but as it looks it has *never* been in JPEG format.
