Using The Right Image Format In Icon Creation.

There are innumerable file formats that could be put to use for storing images and for a relatively raw website maker this can usually change into a major problem because you will need to understand how to utilize a specific file format, given below is a look at the benefits and issues of some popular file formats.

If you are keen on graphic making or wish to create icons for your web site, it is crucial to learn about the varied file formats and their features so that you can utilize the right format for an icon. Among the most popular file types for pictures are JPEG, PNG and GIF, each one of these file formats has its own traits so lets discuss the advantages and disadvantages of using these formats, the type of file that will suit your site and optimizing your images for the web usage.

GIF: The full form is Graphics Interchange Format; this is one of the most commonly used file types. The image format is well accepted because of its image size that is very small which makes uploading less time consuming. Unlike JPEG, information is not lost in this image format this means you will be able to store the file at just a few bytes and without messing the quality of the picture. Since GIF supports transparency in graphics, it is one of the most suitable file formats for picture designing. Unlike the other formats, scope for animation is also possible in GIF. If you wish to consider GIF image optimization, it is important to keep the size of the image small; it is advisable that you select a 32 color palette to get the least possible size.

JPEG: This is short for Joint Photographic Experts Group; the file type is usually called JPG and is usually incorporated for online graphics. One of the main pros of using this type of file is that you could store the pictures in true color that offers you as many as 16 million colors; this renders the image type appropriate for use with photos and graphics that include detailed color work. One of the cons of utilizing JPG is the data loss that you will have to deal with every time the picture is saved; this equates to the fact that the graphic is marred by blurriness and many data may be lost. Unlike other file formats such as GIF, transparency support is not offered in this format. If you are using an advanced image editing program such as the Adobe Photoshop, you can choose the image quality and the image file size ; however, it is vital to comprehend that a lower resolution will mean a small size, which is simple to upload.

PNG: Is an abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics and is a relatively fresh file format. PNG format is available in two versions types; PNG-8 which offers 8 bit color format and the PNG-24 which uses 24 color images. PNG-8 can compress images with great detail and without the normal loss of information experienced in the GIf format; this gives better image quality and quick uploads. However, PNG-24 is not as efficient as JPG when you want to save photographs and other graphics that merit the use of a vaster palette of colors. The image format is sans loss; this means that the photograph retains its crispness and quality. PNG-24 supports transparency and you can utilize different levels of of the feature in this format. In this format the images are better looking because they do not have the tell tale jagged edges when inserted against a contrasting background like GIF files.
