Picking The Right Image File Format When Making Graphics.

There are innumerable image file formats that should be utilized for saving web graphics and for a newbie designer this can quickly lead to a sizable problem because you will need to know how to use a specific image format, offered in this article is a take on the advantages and drawbacks of some well known file formats.

If you are keen on graphic making or want to create icons for your web site, it is crucial to know about the varied image formats and their features so that you can use the correct file type for an image. Among the most popular file types for pictures are PNG, GIF and JPEG, each one of these file types is known to have its own merits so lets talk about the benefits and drawbacks of utilizing these file formats, the type of image that would live up to the requirements of your site and optimizing your web graphics for the web usage.

GIF: It is short for Graphics Interchange Format; the image format is one of the most commonly used file types. The popularity of this format can be attributed tiny image size which makes uploading less time consuming. Also like JPEG, details are not lost in this format which means you could save the graphic without using up a lot of space and messing the quality of the picture. Since GIF supports transparency in graphics, it is one of the most appropriate formats for icon creation. Unlike the other file types, animation is also possible in GIF. If you wish to optimize a GIF file, it is vital to restrict the size of the file; it is advisable that you select a 32 color palette to achieve the smallest possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file format is commonly known as JPG and is frequently used on websites. One of the main advantages of using this type of format is that you could store the images in true color that offers you as many as 16 million colors; this makes the file type appropriate for saving photographs and images that have detailed color work. One of the cons of using JPG is the information loss that will have to be tackled each time the file is saved; this points to the fact that the picture is susceptible to clarity issues and some details may be lost. Unlike other file formats such as GIF, transparency support is not offered in this file format. If you are using an innovative image editing software like the Adobe Photoshop, you will have the liberty to pick the quality and the size of the JPG file ; however, it is imperative to understand that the lower the resolution the smaller the size, which is easy to upload.

PNG: Is short for Portable Network Graphics and is a relatively new file type. PNG is provided in two forms; PNG-8 which is the 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which has 24 color images. PNG-8 can curtail the size graphics with wonderful detail and without the customary loss of details seen in in GIF images; this gives improved picture quality and fast uploads. However, PNG-24 is not as effective as JPG when you need to store pictures and other graphics that require a more detailed palette of colors. The image format is sans loss; this means that the photograph maintains its clarity and quality. PNG-24 supports transparency and you can include varying degrees of of the feature in this image type. With this type of file the graphics are smoother because they do not have the jagged edges when inserted on a contrasting background like GIF files.
