Lesson 2. Working with Graphics > Placing Graphics on the Page

Placing Graphics on the Page

The most common and widely supported graphic formats on the Web are GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) and JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group). When deciding whether to save a graphic as a GIF or a JPEG, aim for the highest image quality and the lowest possible file size.

As a general rule, you should use GIF if the artwork has large areas of solid, flat colors and little or no blending of colors. GIF works well with text, vector graphics, images with a limited number of colors and very small image dimensions. GIF images can be saved, at maximum, using 8-bit color mode in which only 256 colors can be represented. GIF files tend to load faster, have more optimization options, and support transparency and animation.
