Picking The Right Image Format For Your Icons.

There are numerous image file formats that could be utilized for storing web graphics and for a newbie web creator this can quickly lead to a big problem because you will need to know how to use a specific format, here is a an explanation of the advantages and issues of some well known image formats.

If you find yourself drawn to graphic making or wish to create pictorial depictions for your web page, it is imperative to learn about the different image formats and their attributes so that you can utilize the appropriate format for an icon. Normally used file formats for images are JPEG, PNG and GIF, each one of these formats is known to have its own merits so lets discuss the pros and cons of using these formats, the type of image that will meet the expectations your website and optimizing your images for the web usage.

GIF: The full form is Graphics Interchange Format; this is one of the most commonly used file types. The popularity of this format can be attributed image size that is very small which makes uploading a breeze. Unlike JPEG, data is not lost in this file type ; this equates to the fact that you can save the graphic without using up a lot of space and deteriorating the image quality. GIF offers transparency support in graphics, it is one of the most appropriate formats for picture creation. Unlike the other file types, animation is also possible in GIF. If you wish to consider GIF image optimization, it is vital to limit the file size; it would be best that you pick a 32 color palette to create the smallest possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is usually called JPG and is often seen on websites. One of the main pros of incorporating this type of image is that you can save the images in true color that gives you as many as 16 million colors; making this file type suitable for saving photographs and pictures that have detailed color work. One of the issues of utilizing JPG is the information loss that will have to be tackled every time the image is stored; this equates to the fact that the picture is marred by blurriness and a lot of information may be lost. Unlike other file formats such as GIF, transparency is not possible in this format. If you are using a superior image editing program for instance, the Adobe Photoshop, you will have the liberty to choose the image quality and the file size ; however, it is imperative to understand that a lower resolution equates to a smaller size, which is convenient to upload.

PNG: Is stands for Portable Network Graphics and is a fairly new image format. PNG format is provided in two forms; PNG-8 which offers 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which uses 24 color images. PNG-8 can compress images with wonderful detail and without the customary loss of data observed in in GIF images; this leads to high image quality and quick upload time. However, PNG-24 is not as efficacious as JPG when you have to save photographs and other illustrations that require a wider palette of colors. The format is loss-less; this means that the picture maintains its quality and clarity. PNG-24 offers transparency support and you can utilize different levels of transparency in this file format. When you use this file format the graphics are professional looking because you cant see jagged lines when inserted against a contrasting background like GIF files.
