A web design may require different types of image formats. However, it may be a little confusing to decide which file type is appropriate. Find out.
Graphics Interchange Format is the most appropriate format to display indexed-color images i.e. it can only be displayed with 256 colors as minimum. It is not recommended for pictures that are rich with color.
Joint Photographic Experts Group is a format that is suitable to display photographs or images that have continuous tone on the web. Jpg format supports Grayscale color modes, RGB (millions of colors) and CMYK. Unlike .gif, .jpg does not preserve transparency.
Portable Network Graphics is a mixture of the other two format types. However, it supports background transparency without jagged edges and supports 24-bit images unlike .gif. Png supports Bitmap, Grayscale, Indexed Color and RGB mode images.
Choose the image format according to its visibility and quality on the web.
