If you have imported pictures (not references to pictures) there are no jpeg images to export. Upon import they are comverted to pict images, there is no way I know of to export the original picture at the original resolution.

If you want to "export" and use pictures in a database, import only references to the pictures and access the externally stored images for other uses.
