Using The Right Image File Format In Icon Creation.

There are several image file formats that should be used for storing icons and for an inexperienced web creator this can quickly turn into a big issue because you should understand how to utilize a particular image format, offered in this article is a look at the advantages and issues of some commonly used file formats.

If you find yourself drawn to graphic making or want to create pictorial depictions for your web page, it is crucial to know about the various image file formats and their traits so that you can make use of the correct file type for an icon. Some of the commonly used formats for pictures are GIF, JPEG and PNG, all of these file types boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets discuss the benefits and drawbacks of using these file formats, the type of image format that would suit your web page and optimizing your web graphics for the web usage.

GIF: It is the abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format; this is one of the more well known file types. The popularity of this format can be attributed tiny image size which makes uploading a breeze. Also like JPEG, information is not lost in this format ; this equates to the fact that you can save the file in a smaller size without messing the image quality. Since GIF supports transparency in pictures, it is one of the most appropriate formats for picture making. Unlike the other formats, animation is also possible in GIF. If you want to consider GIF image optimization, it is vital to keep the size of the image small; it is recommended that you pick a 32 color palette to create the smallest possible size.

JPEG: This stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the image format is commonly called JPG and is usually incorporated on websites. One of the main benefits of utilizing this type of file is that you could store the graphics in true color that offers you a palette of 16 million colors; making this file type ideal for use with photos and images that boast of detailed color work. One of the problems of utilizing JPG is the data loss that will have to be tackled each time the picture is stored; this equates to the fact that the graphic is marred by clarity issues and many details may be lost. Unlike the GIF format, transparency support is not offered in this file format. If you are utilizing an innovative image editing software for instance, the Adobe Photoshop, you will have the liberty to pick the quality and the file size ; however, it is important to comprehend that a lower resolution will mean a small size, which is easy to upload.

PNG: Is short for Portable Network Graphics and is a relatively fresh image format. PNG is available in two forms; PNG-8 which is the 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which uses 24 color graphics. PNG-8 can curtail the size graphics with fantastic detail and without the usual loss of data experienced in GIF files; this gives improved image quality and fast uploads. But, PNG-24 is not as effective as JPG when you need to store pictures and other graphics that require a vaster palette of colors. The image format is not limited by loss; this means that the photograph holds on to its crispness and quality. PNG-24 supports transparency and you can use various levels of transparency in this image type. In this format the images are smoother because they do not have the jagged edges when pitched in relation to a contrasting color backgrounds like GIF files.
