What Kind of Graphics to Use on a Web Page
If you're new to Web page design, you may wonder whether you should use GIF or JPG graphics. You'll see many examples of both on the Internet. In general, you should use JPG files for photos and full color drawings (JPG allows 24-bit color--16.7+ million colors). However, you can use GIF files when you don't need full color. GIF files only allow a maximum of 256 colors. Animated graphics always require GIF.
