Picking The Correct File Format In Icon Creation.

There are innumerable image file formats that could be put to use for storing web graphics and for an inexperienced web creator this can usually turn into a big issue because you will need to understand how to incorporate a certain format, offered in this article is a take on the benefits and drawbacks of some popular image formats.

If you find yourself drawn to web graphic designing or would like to create pictorial depictions for your web page, it is crucial to know about the varied image formats and their attributes so that you can make use of the right file format for graphics. Some of the commonly used formats for pictures are GIF, JPEG and PNG, each one of these file types boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets discuss the pros and cons of incorporating these file formats, the type of image format that will live up to the requirements of your site and optimizing your icons for the web usage.

GIF: It is the abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format; the format is by far the most popular file type. The reason for its popularity is its small size which makes it easy to upload them. Unlike JPEG, details are not lost in this file type this means you can save the graphic in a smaller size without messing the quality of the images. Since GIF supports transparency in images, it is by far the most suitable formats for web graphic making. Unlike the other formats, animation is also offered in GIF. If you want to consider GIF image optimization, it is necessary to keep the size of the image small; it is recommended that you select a 32 color palette to achieve the least possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the image format is generally called JPG and is frequently incorporated for online graphics. One of the main advantages of incorporating this type of image is that you could store the images in true color that gives you an impressive range of 16 million colors; this makes the file format ideal for use with photographs and images that have intricate color work. One of the problems of using JPG is the information loss that will have to be tackled each time the file is stored; this points to the fact that the image is prone to clarity issues and a lot of data may be lost. Unlike other file formats such as GIF, transparency support is not offered in this file type. If you are using an innovative image editing program for instance, the Adobe Photoshop, you will be able to pick the image quality and the image file size but it is imperative to understand that a lower resolution will mean a small size, which is convenient to upload.

PNG: Is short for Portable Network Graphics and is a very fresh image format. This format is provided in two versions types; PNG-8 which is the 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which uses 24 color images. PNG-8 can compress pictures with great detail and without the normal loss of details experienced in GIF files; this results in improved quality pictures and quick uploads. However, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you want to save photos and other images that need a more detailed color palette. The format is sans loss; this means that the image holds on to its clarity and quality. PNG-24 supports transparency and you can utilize different levels of transparency in this file format. In this format the images are professional looking because they do not have the jagged edges when pitched on a background with contrasting colors like GIF files.
