Sarah Mead's Midterm Exam


GIF vs. JPEG

GIFs are for graphics, which can be created on Photoshop. JPEGs are for images, which are photographs taken with cameras. GIFs have less color options that JPEGs do, so to keep all the colors of the photograph, it would have to be saved as JPEG. JPEGs are also larger than GIFs, and JPEGs generally take longer to download. JPEGs also save images sharper than GIFs.
