GIF— An acronym that stands for Graphics InterchangeFormat. This lossless file format is limited to a maximum of 256 colors and is ideal for imagery that contains large areas of solid color.

JPEG— An acronym that stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group.

It's ideal for images containing soft edges, gradations, or a wide range of color, such as photographs.
