    What's the best graphic format to print from HTML pages

    I'm creating invoice on HTML pages that I want to print
    These all have pictures of people and goods on


    I'm using PNG - I thought this would be the best format
    Unfortunately, the graphic comes out squashed and not in the original ratio
    What do I need to do to get the original graphic output?


    And is PNG the best format to use to get the best output printed?


    Thanks

    Web sites are not generally designed to be printed, so the graphic format is largely irrelevant. I would suggest that you may need to manipulate the image in one of the plethora of image editing programs to correct the aspect ratio.

    You will get the best printed output quality from any loss-less graphic format...

    have you converted these html pages into pdf files before you're printing them? Adobe Acrobat Pro will do this easily for you.

    Just out of curiosity, why aren't you just printing these HTML documents with a browser?

    Well you want two different things, one is that best image format for web is JPEG that is because having very small size as compare to PNG, and the best printable file is PDF that is very big size o file, so if you want to use best image for website so use only JPEG except logo, for logo you can use png.
