Using The Right Image File Format When Making Graphics.

There are innumerable file formats that should be used for saving web graphics and for a relatively raw website maker this can quickly turn into a major problem because you will need to understand how to incorporate a certain file format, offered in this article is an explanation of the benefits and drawbacks of some well known image formats.

If you are interested in web graphic designing or wish to create graphical representations for your web site, it is crucial to find out more about the different image formats and their traits so that you can use the right file format for an image. Among the most popular formats for graphics are JPEG, PNG and GIF, every one these formats boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets discuss the pros and cons of utilizing these formats, the type of image format that would live up to the requirements of your web page and optimizing your web graphics for the web usage.

GIF: It is short for Graphics Interchange Format; the format is one of the most commonly used file types. The reason for its popularity is its small size which makes uploading a breeze. Unlike JPEG, details are not lost in this file type ; this equates to the fact that you can store the image in a smaller size without deteriorating the quality of the picture. The format is also known to support transparency in pictures, it is by far the most appropriate formats for icon creation. Unlike the other file types, animation is also offered in GIF. If you wish to optimize a GIF file, it is important to restrict the size of the file; it is recommended that you choose a 32 color palette to create the least possible size.

JPEG: This is the abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is generally known as JPG and is usually incorporated in web designing. One of the main advantages of using this type of format is that you could store the graphics in true color that offers you a palette of 16 million colors; this makes the file type ideal for saving photos and images that boast of detailed color range. One of the cons of utilizing JPG is the loss of details that will have to be tackled every time the image is stored; this points to the fact that the graphic is marred by compromised clarity and many details may be lost. Unlike the GIF format, support for transparency is not provided in this format. If you are utilizing an advanced image editing software like the Adobe Photoshop, you will be able to select the quality and the size of the JPG file ; however, it is imperative to realize that a lower resolution will mean a small size, which is easy to upload.

PNG: Is an abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics and is a fairly fresh file format. PNG format is offered in two versions types; PNG-8 which has a 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which has 24 color images. PNG-8 can curtail the size images with great detail and without the usual loss of information observed in in GIF images; this leads to improved quality pictures and quick uploads. But, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you want to save pictures and other illustrations that merit the use of a vaster color palette. The format is not limited by loss; this means that the photograph retains its clarity and quality. PNG-24 supports transparency and you can use varying degrees of the transparency feature in this file format. With this type of file the pictures are smoother because they do not have the jagged edges when inserted in relation to a contrasting color backgrounds like GIF files.
