Which file format should I use for digital images?

JPEG or PNG files can be used for any digital images/ formats online. JPEG files can be compressed to a considerable size however too much of compression can lead to pixelated output. You can use JPEG for online images which need faster downloading. A high resolution JPEG file can be used for printing and JPEG images can be compressed to a very small size and can be used for emailing or for a quick preview. When you need a web graphic with transparent background then JPEG is not useful because of its solid background colors.

PNG images are best suited for any background because of its transparency. If you would like to put up your logo in colored backgrounds or you use your logo to put on top of any picture then PNG file format is recommended. PNG files can be compressed without losing quality. Use PNG files to put your logo on
