    What type of image is best to use for a website/company logo?

    I've got confused about images.

    I understand roughly what a vector is, and I happen to have found some great vectors that would be perfect for my website/company logo.

    Can that work?

    Please use fairly simple language to help me!

    .png format is the best to use as a company logo, and create the logo using illustrator and photoshop. Now a days, retina pixel logo works perfect in every device the visitor use.

    The original should be a vector image, so that it can be expanded and contracted without loss of fidelity. The image used in web sites can be JPEG, PNG or even GIF (if a limited palette is used).

    Don't use PNG, anyone suggesting PNG images for use on a website has obviously never built a site before. They aren't supported by all browsers and your visitors will be disappointed when problems arise. Trust me, save yourself and use JPG (or GIF for animated/transparent).

    For the record:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portabl...upport_for_PNG

    Personally, I believe anyone still using IE8- deserves what they get.

    To be honest though, I use PNG as GIF on steroids. If I need a graphic that has more than 256 colors in the palette PNG gets used. If I need transparency I use GIF -- usually. I do not use animated GIFs at all; too 1996 for me.

    Yes, there's a bit of a hit on file-size. For example, if you have a 10kb GIF, the PNG version will be about 15kb. But that extra size gets you millions of colors if you need them. It's always a trade-off, but there's really no reason to dismiss PNG.

    I've been using the PNG format for a number of graphics on a site for 8-10 years and not one complaint from a "disappointed" visitor. One of them is on the home page and is the organization logo. You'd think that if there was a problem someone in the last 8-10 years would have sent me a nasty-gram, but no, it has never happened.

    Google is using a PNG as their logo today:

    Guess they've never built a website before.

    Logo must be in PNG, although you can create in on any software, most commonly Adobe illustrator and Photoshop is used to create logo.

    JPG and JPEG are the best image format for your company logo, because many sites accepts only JPG or JPEG format.
