Question 2: Explain the two commonly used image formats on the Web. Explain when you will choose to use a GIF format and when you will choose to use a JPEG format.
The two image formats commonly used on the Web are GIF and JPEG formats.
GIF, Graphic Interchance Format, are graphic files that end with .gif. This file type discards all the non-websafe colors. You can use this file type if you have a photograph or image that has fewer than 256 colors and uses only websafe colors. By using this file type in this situation, the image will remain sharper.
JPEG, Joint Photography Experts Group, are graphic files that end with .jpeg. This file type was developed and utilized often due to its ability to compress file sizes. Due to this, a slight loss of sharpness may happen. You can use this file type if you have a photograph that you want to use on your webpage.
