Taking the Mystery Out of Image File Types

We all know the benefits of using images and video in our social content. And then there’s the question of what to use in eBooks, presentations, on our websites, in blog posts and more.

I’ve recently begun teaching myself how to use Pixlr to do some of my own image editing and save my graphic designer’s time for things that absolutely require his talent.

So the question kept coming up for me. Which image file type should I be saving things as?

I tried asking my designer, but I have to admit… This is something that gets those guys jacked up, and I was lost after just a few sentences…

However, when you need it, the answer comes, right?

So, here it is, in a simple to understand (for non-designer types) explanation.

Thanks to Matt from WhoIsHostingThis.com for reaching out to me and making me aware of it.

I hope you find it as useful as I did!
