Hi Everyone, CowGirl Here!
I purchased images from clipart.com, some of which came in both jpg and gif format. The gif format has a much smaller file size than the jpg format. Most of these pictures contain many colors and many curvy shapes (they are not images with straight lines and few colors). I had thought that pictures with many colors and curvy lines should be in the jpg format, and pictures with straight lines and few colors should be in the gif format.
All these images will have to be cropped and then resized to a smaller size.
I am somewhat confused. Should I use the jpg or gif formats?
You can see the pictures I am talking about here: http://betohelp.eu/. (This page has pictures with somewhat large file sizes.) The second set of pictures (the tree) is a perfect example - the jpg is 208 KB and the gif is 87 KB.
Thank you for your time and Big Hugs,
