Choosing An Appropriate Image File Format When Making Graphics.

There are numerous image file formats that can be used for saving web graphics and for a relatively raw designer this can quickly lead to a big problem because you will need to understand how to use a particular image format, offered in this article is a take on the advantages and issues of some popular file formats.

If you are interested in web graphic designing or want to create icons for your site, it is crucial to find out more about the varied image file formats and their attributes so that you can utilize the right format for an icon. Some of the commonly used formats for images are GIF, JPEG and PNG, every one these formats boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets look at the advantages and disadvantages of utilizing these file formats, the type of image that would live up to the requirements of your web page and optimizing your web graphics for the web usage.

GIF: It is the abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format; the format is one of the most commonly used file types. The reason for its popularity is its tiny image size which makes uploading less time consuming. Also like JPEG, data is not lost in this format which means you could save the image at just a few bytes and without messing the image quality. Since GIF supports transparency in graphics, it is the most commonly used image formats for icon creation. Unlike the other image formats, animation is also possible in GIF. If you wish to optimize a GIF file, it is important to keep the size of the image small; it would be best that you select a 32 color palette to create the smallest possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is usually known as JPG and is frequently seen in web designing. One of the primary benefits of utilizing this type of file is that you will be able to store the images in true color that gives you a palette of 16 million colors; this renders the file type suitable for storing photographs and pictures that boast of vast color work. One of the issues of utilizing JPG is the loss of details that is encountered every time the picture is saved; this points to the fact that the picture is marred by clarity issues and a lot of details may be lost. Unlike the GIF format, support for transparency is not provided in this file type. If you are using an advanced image editing software for instance, the Adobe Photoshop, you will be able to choose the quality and the size of the JPG file but it is vital to comprehend that the lower the resolution the smaller the size, which is simple to upload.

PNG: Is an abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics and is a fairly fresh image format. This format is offered in two forms; PNG-8 which has a 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which has 24 color pictures. PNG-8 can curtail the size graphics with fantastic detail and without the usual loss of data observed in GIF files; this results in high image quality and fast uploads. But, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you have to store photographs and other images that need a wider color palette. The file type is loss-less; this means that the photograph maintains its quality and clarity. PNG-24 offers transparency support and you can include varying degrees of the transparency feature in this image type. With this type of file the images are better looking because they do not have the jagged edges when inserted against a contrasting color backgrounds like GIF files.
