This post is not party related... Well, I was wondering why my images didn't look so good on the web as they looked on my camera and why they took so much space if I compressed them a lot! I specially noticed this when I looked at other pics on Etsy that were stunning! Well I was saving them in the wrong format! Maybe all of you already knew and I am the last person on the web to know, but when you save pics for the web, the format will depend on the picture itself.
JPEG - best for pictures!
GIF - best for clipart!
PNG - when you have lots of colors but want transparency!
The picture above was saved in JPEG and only takes 15 seconds to download at 28.8 Kbps, compared to 55 sec in GIF and 48 sec in PNG. Also the JPEG in this case is a lot better quality, stunning in fact! You can click to see a larger version. I am so happy I found this and my pics will be a lot better on the web from now on. No more grainy pics for me!
