What is the best format for saving picture files? In order of preference, we accept:
  1. .tif or .tiff (Tagged Image File Format.) These have the least loss of quality. Don't compress, if possible. Especially avoid JPEG or LZW compression.
  2. .png (Portable Network Graphic). This is a new type of file that retains quality well.
  3. .bmp (Bitmap). These files retain good quality but are hard to send over the internet because they are much larger than other files.
  4. .jpeg (Joint Photographic Experts Group). These files are smaller but lose a lot of quality in the image.
  5. .gif (Graphics Interchange Format). These are ok for black and white pictures, but are highly compressed so they lose quality.
