Choose Appropriate Image Format

A major problem with using images on Web sites is that images take much longer to load than text. So you have to choose your image formats carefully.

Two image formats are most commonly used and supported on the Internet: GIF and JPEG. These formats use different methods to reduce the size of an image. Normally you should use JPEG images for photographs and other images that contain significant color variation. GIF images are well suited for images that contain sharp lines such as icons, buttons, or Web site banners.
