Here is a quick explanation of each image format:
- PNG — bigger file size with a detailed pixel and transparent effect capability
- JPEG — smaller size with decent quality, perfect for a web image
- GIF — only supports 256 colors and less detail
- TIFF — meant to be preserve quality which means can’t be compressed
I personally prefer JPEG or PNG because these formats are the most common type on the internet. But feel free to choose the best format that works for your intentions.
