Choosing The Right Image File Format When Making Graphics.

There are numerous image file formats that can be put to use for storing web graphics and for a newbie website maker this can often lead to a sizable issue because you will need to understand how to utilize a certain file format, offered in this article is a take on the advantages and issues of some well known formats.

If you are keen on icon making or would like to create graphical representations for your web site, it is essential to know about the different image formats and their attributes so that you can utilize the right format for an icon. Some of the commonly used formats for graphics are JPEG, PNG and GIF, all of these formats boasts of a fair share of advantages so lets look at the benefits and drawbacks of utilizing these file formats, the type of file that should meet the expectations your website and optimizing your web graphics for the web usage.

GIF: The full form is Graphics Interchange Format; this is by far the most popular file type. The image format is well accepted because of its tiny image size which makes uploading less time consuming. But like in the JPEG format, details are not lost in this format which means you could store the image in a smaller size without messing the image quality. GIF offers transparency support in images, it is by far the most appropriate formats for picture creation. Unlike the other file types, animation is also possible in GIF. If you want to consider GIF image optimization, it is important to limit the file size; it is advisable that you pick a 32 color palette to create a suitably small size.

JPEG: This is the abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is usually known as JPG and is often used in web designing. One of the primary benefits of using this type of file is that you will be able to save the images in true color that offers you an impressive range of 16 million colors; this makes the file type ideal for saving photos and images that have vast color range. One of the problems of using JPG is the loss of details that will have to be tackled every time the image is saved; this equates to the fact that the graphic is prone to clarity issues and some data may be lost. Unlike other file formats such as GIF, transparency support is not offered in this format. If you are utilizing a superior image editing software such as the Adobe Photoshop, you will be able to choose the image quality and the size of the JPG file but it is imperative to understand 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 new file format. PNG is provided 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 pictures with wonderful detail and without the normal loss of details observed in in GIF images; this leads to improved image quality and quick upload time. However, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you have to save pictures and other illustrations that need a more detailed palette of colors. The file type is sans loss; this means that the photograph retains its crispness and quality. PNG-24 offers the transparency feature and you can use various levels of transparency in this format. With this type of file the graphics are better looking because you cant see jagged lines when placed against a background with contrasting colors like GIF files.
