Now that I have my new Creative Cloud CS6, I'm wondering if saving and submitting files using jpeg 2000 format would be better than standard jpeg?
Would they be accepted does anyone know and it is a good idea (as in theory would retain better quality)?
It does use the .jpf suffix so slightly worried it might nor conform?
I can, of course, save on regular jpeg at 12 but thanks for any thoughts.
(I did search this topic but couldn't spot anything).

Stick to normal jpegs. Jpeg2000 I think gives you a layered jpeg file.

jpeg2000 is not acceptable.

I don't think iStock accepts jpeg2000 files. They're a format that never took off. In previous replies to this question, I've likened them to Betamax, technically superior to VHS but it never reached the critical mass to become widely adopted. A/B comparisons of jpegs and jpeg2000 files don't show any real difference either. If we didn't have TIFFS or similar lossless formats maybe they would have been more popular.
