Other Image File Formats

In addition to the formats already mentioned, there is a wide range of other formats available, including the GIF Web and presentation graphics format. This format has a total of 255 reproducible colors and results in very small files, but it is only suited for use with the smallest photos. To present photos on the Web, we prefer highly compressed JPEGs.

PNG supports a greater range of color depth (up to 32 bits per color channel), but it doesn't support embedded color profiles and layers. Therefore, we don't use the PNG format for photos.

EPS and DCS are relevant for transferring data to some DTP applications, but they are not part of our workflow.
