My first attempt at photo restoration - suggestions?

I just had some very old, large format, B&W negatives scanned to cd. They were saved as jpegs. I think the first thing I should do is to save them as gifs or tiffs, right? What do you recommend? Also, when I open them in Gimp I get the message, "The image 'image1.jpg' has an embedded color profile: Epson Standard RGB - Gamma 1.8...Convert the image to the RGB working space (sRGB built-in)?"
What the... what do this mean and what should I do, "convert" or "keep".

Also, any good tutorials out there for beginners?

If they're good quality jpegs there's no need to save in another file format.
Definitely don't save as gif, it reduces the quality quite a bit.

Saving as a tiff file wouldn't benefit your image, because they've already been compressed as a jpeg, which is a lossy format.

All that popup is asking you is if you'd like to change the photo's color model to RGB, which is the native color format for image display on computers.
If you're looking to print out these pictures, I'd choose not to convert it.

This is just because printers print using CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and key [black]) and that's what your image has been processed with. You'll get a better color match between digital display and the printed article if you work in CMYK mode.

If you're looking to display it simply as digital art on the computer, you can convert it.

As for tutorials, you can find a great many good tutorials on the Tutorialized home page -- TZD

Hope this helps
