The Final Destinations

The vast majority of images created or prepared in Photoshop and Illustrator are destined for the World Wide Web or for print. The difference between the two is substantial, and you must consider the ultimate use of your image when selecting a file format.

Check the documentation for the program in which you'll be using the Photoshop artwork. You'll want to check for information on file formats that can be opened or placed in the program, color mode and bit depth requirements, limits on file sizes, applicability of alpha channels or clipping paths for transparency, and any other factors that could determine which file format is most appropriate.
