The three most common formats for photos/images are JPEG, PNG, and GIF.


JPEG File Format

JPEG is a compressed format, so it will be smaller in size than a PNG or GIF. However, JPEGs are not as good for line drawings or text because they can lose some of the detail.

2. PNG

PNG File Format



PNG is an uncompressed format and therefore takes up more space than a JPEG, but it is good for preserving line drawings and text.

3. GIF

GIF File Format

GIF is a compressed format that is best for small, simple images because it doesn’t lose as much detail as a JPEG.
