Image Types Explained

There are three common image formats used on the webpage, JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), PNG (Portable Network Graphics), and WebP, all of them have their strengths and weaknesses. Before knowing why save webpage image as JPEG, you have to know the differences between them.

JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), PNG (Portable Network Graphics), and WebP are three common image formats used on the web, each with its strengths and weaknesses. Here's a comparison of the three:

Format Comparison JPEG PNG WEBP
Compression lossy lossless lossy & lossless
File Size Smaller Larger Smaller only with lossy compression
Image Quality Low Original Medium
Usually Used Web images, digital photography Logo, icons, images with text Web images like photographs, illustrations, and graphics

JPEG (JPG) uses lossy compression, which means it can compress images with a smaller file size. So, JPEG is commonly used where a smaller file size is more important than perfect image quality, such as web images and digital photography.

PNG uses lossless compression, which means it retains all image data without loss of quality. This can result in larger file sizes compared to JPEG but ensures that the image quality is not degraded. PNG is often used for preserving image quality other than file size, such as logos, icons, and images with text.

WEBP is a newer format that supports both lossy and lossless compression, providing flexibility in balancing image quality and file size. WebP images generally have smaller file sizes compared to JPEG and PNG, especially when using lossy compression. WEBP is becoming more popular for web use due to its smaller file sizes and support for both lossy and lossless compression.
