Image Types and Advice

  • jpeg (jpg): Great for web - Doesn't support Transparency
  • png: Good for smaller transparent graphics (Don't use with photos)
  • svg: Vector... Not too large if not overly complicated. No problems with resolution!
  • Don't use TIFF or RAW images on the Web! They are huge. Export them to jpeg
  • Don't use HUGE images. For full page images, use a max of 1600px width. If the images are background images, you can export at a high compression rate to jpg.
