Complete Windows 8.1 Paint

Post by SLGray on Fri Jun 10, 2016 12:09 am

My new Windows 8.1 computer has Paint installed.  I was just wondering what is the best format to save and upload my images?

As with any Digital media program,the answer depends on what your using the image for.

.JPEG - for most images that don't require transparency.
. PNG and .GIF both save in transparency,
but with the GIF, you can also save animation. I mainly use .JPEG and .PNG, the only time i use .GIF is if i have an animated file.
Hope this helps.

Well, .png files are larger in file size--however, that's because overall, they are better in quality--especially for larger images.

If you're creating smaller images and you don't need transparency, .jpeg is the way to go. ^^ It's all pretty much as Scorpions says.
