JPG,GIF,MP3 to BMP, WAV
am i right that converting to these formats means it`s lossless? (from compressed opened jpg to say just saving it with MSpaint into BMP)?

yes but you still inherit the flaws from the previous lossy encoding, so you dont get any quality benefits.
One small exception would be transparency info in .gif as I don't think bmp supports it.
What is the purpose of this ?
example when you do an abx of mp3 vs original the mp3 is very often decompresse back to .wav(PCM) format so you are ABX between two .wav files. this .wave file outputs the exact same data as the .mp3 files ( save for faulty players)

Do you know MP3 bitstream enough to tell with full certainity? I ask because I suspect there might be some accuracy loss when convertion frequency-domain floats to time-domain ints. Even though players do the conversion too, there may be information in the file that gets lost in the process and thus conversion would introduce further loss.

thought maybe it`s a way to convert jpgs to like fliff, webp - with lossless options? not every compressor supports jpgs as input so question arose

Any decompressed (optimised) JPG will always give a bigger output size when recompressed in any lossless way. Same thing applies to MP3's too.
What's the benefit in decompressing 1MB JPEG to 25MB and compress it lossless to 20MB?

Ok i get it, no possible jpgs file size reduction converting losslessly to other formats.

Ofcause i DO...absolutely not

but a lot wiser men than me would know that.

Well, some high quality JPEGs of vector images and texts can be losslessly converted to PNG with possible size redictuion.

And they can be converted to even smaller JPEGs without loosing visual quality as well... (-;
