    Question regarding image type for logo

    Level 7
      I just made a logo for a site that I am creating. My question is what file
      type do you all prefer for your own sites? It seems like with a png file
      you get the quality and with the right exporting you can get a smaller file
      size. Gif gets you a smaller file size, just sometimes problems with image
      quality.

      Would love to hear your thoughts.

          PNG

          Correct.

          GIFs are only smaller if the PNG wasn't exported properly. There are
          some more options in PNG than in GIF that may affect file size (color
          depth, transparency mode, ...), but it should always be possible to get
          it as small or even smaller than a GIF.

          Except for animations IMHO there's really no reason to use GIF anymore.

            If the image has texture or more than 256 colors, use JPG. If it has < 256
            colors, then either PNG or GIF, depending on which gives you the smaller
            file.
