PNG or JPEG? What’s better for blog posts?

JPG vs PNG

 

PNGS

  • is a lossless compression file format
  • good choice for storing line drawings, text, and iconic graphics at a small file size.
  • you can incorporate transparency into this file
  • or line art, text-heavy images, and images with few colors
  • big file size

JPEGS

  • is a lossy compressed file format
  • this makes it useful for storing photographs at a smaller size than (ex: a BMP)
  • common choice for use on the Web because it is compressed
  • for photographs and realistic images
  • designed to make detailed photographic images as small as possible by removing information that the human eye won’t notice
  • bad for logos
  • discards a lot of data
