Difference between JPG file and PNG file

Recommended Posts

in basic terms.. JPG files are lossy--this means a graphic loses soem of its detail level when you save as a .jpg - was designed to lose any detail its perameters decide that the human eye cannot detect. it did this to save space. of course different eyes see at different levels, so...

png format is lossless. when you save as a .png it saves every little microscopic detail.. therefore, unless you have something that requires jpg, or you are short on storage space..use the png
