The LPS does the conversion for you. Provided you have caching turned
on (it's on by default) the performance hit should only happen the first
time the image is requested. In general, it's not an issue unless each
user will be downloading unique images.
If you did the conversion manually, you would get a slight performance
gain for the first load. Another option is to write a script that
prefills the LPS cache by requesting each JPEG through the LPS. Either
one of these options would require some work on your part.
Note that 3.0+ will have the serverless deployment option. This means
the compiled app will be able to download JPEG files directly to the
client without requiring conversion to .swf. This is probably the best
option for you, if you can wait for the official release.
