Picking The Correct File Format When Making Graphics.

There are innumerable image formats that could be put to use for saving images and for a newbie designer this can often lead to a big problem because you will have to understand how to use a certain image format, here is a an explanation of the benefits and issues of some well known image formats.

If you are keen on icon making or want to create pictorial depictions for your web page, it is imperative to learn about the various image formats and their attributes so that you can utilize the appropriate file format for an image. Normally used file types for images are PNG, GIF and JPEG, every one these formats boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets talk about the pros and cons of incorporating these formats, the type of image format that should live up to the requirements of your website and optimizing your web graphics for the internet.

GIF: It is short for Graphics Interchange Format; this is one of the more well known file types. The image format is well accepted because of its tiny image size which makes it easy to upload them. Unlike JPEG, information is not lost in this file type ; this equates to the fact that you can save the graphic at just a few bytes and without messing the quality of the images. The format is also known to support transparency in graphics, it is the most commonly used image formats for picture designing. Unlike the other image formats, animation is also possible in GIF. If you wish to optimize a GIF file, it is necessary to keep the size of the image small; it would be best that you choose a 32 color palette to get the least possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is generally called JPG and is often incorporated on websites. One of the main benefits of utilizing this type of file is that you will be able to store the pictures in true color that affords you a palette of 16 million colors; this renders the file type appropriate for saving photographs and pictures that include vast color work. One of the cons of using JPG is the loss of details that you will have to deal with each time the image is saved; this means that the graphic is susceptible to blurriness and some data may be lost. Unlike the GIF format, transparency support is not offered in this file format. If you have chosen an advanced image editing program such as the Adobe Photoshop, you will have the liberty to pick the quality and the file size ; however, it is important to understand that a lower resolution will mean a small size, which is simple to upload.

PNG: Is short for Portable Network Graphics and is a fairly new file format. This format is provided in two versions types; PNG-8 which offers 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which has 24 color pictures. PNG-8 can compress graphics with great detail and without the usual loss of data seen in GIF files; this results in improved picture quality and quick uploads. But, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you have to store pictures and other graphics that require a wider palette of colors. The file type is not limited by loss; this means that the photograph retains its clarity and quality. PNG-24 offers the transparency feature and you can utilize different levels of the transparency feature in this file format. In this format the pictures are professional looking because they do not have the jagged edges when inserted in relation to a background with contrasting colors like GIF files.
