Image File Formats – Which To Use?

Image File Formats Featured

Just a few days ago I was discussing the employment process with someone. And we got to talking about exactly how you should send in your CV to a company. To save you a trudge through that conversation, here is the answer. Unless asked otherwise, save your CV as a PDF. If you don’t it will look amateurish and unprofessional.

Which brings me to the point of this article. This conversation got me thinking about other situations where using the correct extension could be important. It was then I started to think about the different image file formats that we have. And I realised something. I had no idea when, or even if, there is a difference between using a JPEG or a PNG. It was then that I came across this great infographic from WhoIsHostingThis.

It breaks down the three main image file formats (JPEG, GIF & PNG) into their main uses. Shows you in which instance you should use them and for what specific reason. And for those of you who don’t want to read the whole thing, it even has a handy summation at the bottom.
