Which Graphics File Format is Best to Use When?

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) – .jpg – This format allows you to decide the degree of quality you would like before saving: low, medium and high. It is very easy to store images with JPEG’s, but the quality is often degraded. This option easily reduces the file size, but is mostly used when the quality of the image is not a priority.

PNG (Portable Network Graphics) – .png – This format is great when dealing with photos because the quality is not compromised. You can pair it with a transparent background as well as other great effects. The file size tends to be bigger, which is why it is often used with smaller photos.

GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) – .gif – The format is similar to PNG quality wise and is often used for short animations. The color range is shortened when using this format, which is why it is not often used for photos.

PSD (Photoshop Document) – .psd – This directly saves all info on a Photoshop file, meaning you can easily edit all parts of the document. Make sure to NOT merge files before saving in order to have full access to the file because you can not go back once you merge layers. The only downside is the receiver of the file must have Photoshop to view the document.The file size can also be quite large, but this is one of the highest quality formats.

TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) – .tif – This format is mostly used by photographers. You can use this format with any photo editing software, but keep in mind that these file sizes are large and do take up a lot of room.

These sort of simple templates are very useful in fully understanding how your website is set up and how it looks to visitors. Making wireframes such as the one above help to show you the way in which your site is set up as well as if there are any parts to improve on. Having the mindset of a visitor when making this wireframe will help to distinguish how easy your site is to navigate. These simple maps encourage you to make a detailed site that makes visitors want to come back! It is useful to make wireframes both before and after making a site to check thoroughness while also making sure all the main blocks correlate. Have fun making wireframes!
