Yes.  JPEG output was added in 7.7.

GIF (tm) and BMP save frames in 8-bit format (this is a GIF and BMP thing,
not a McIDAS thing).  To save frames using full color, you must use ppm.
The ppm format is supported by a wide variety of image display applications
like XV, ImageMagic, et.c

>Thanks for the help,

You are welcome.
