    My BlackBerry 10 device, latest OS, started saving the pics from my camera as .PNG files instead of .JPEG files, and I cannot figure out why or how to change it back? Anyone have some guidance on this weird issue? Thanks CB!

    Where/how are you seeing the files with the png extension?
    Remember that screenshots will be png.

    Anyone know why screen shots are PNG instead of JPG or any other format? I always wondered but never asked.

    PNG supports lossless compression and is good for compressing medium to low detail images like those used in screen graphics. A screenshot often contains a lot of one colour, for example, so it compresses really well.

    JPEG was specially designed for photos and is a lossy format (you permanently lose some image detail, but get an otherwise smaller file).
