Sorry, I meant STYLES library...
I often would use .png files for small images. I found that when using gradients, it is best to use jpeg at higher dimensions in your image file for example, 1200 x 12 saved as a jpeg will make a nice gradient :)
With the built in styles, it's best to go with gif format.
A gradient will look the same as a JPG or a 24bit PNG, assuming your two
file exports are at a comparable quality setting.
Of course, a GIF should never be used for images with texture or gradients.
