Chapter 4. Ensuring Visual Appeal > Getting Familiar with Graphics File Formats

Getting Familiar with Graphics File Formats

There are two main graphics file formats in use on the Web. It's true that there are many other formats in use on the Web, but they're not as popular as the big two: JPG (or JPEG) and GIF. A third, much‐less popular format that you might encounter is PNG.

JPEG and GIF files are popular because they work well for most graphics that a Web site needs, and they're viewable by any browser that has graphics‐display capabilities. Users don't need to make any special modifications or change any settings.
