super quick tip: save it as a .gifMay 21, 2007
Not everyone has a fast connection. Heck, for some of you this page is still loading up. When you have an image that your going to use for the web, and there isn’t that many colors in the image, save it as a gif. It takes up less time to load because the file is smaller then a jpeg. You could be fancy and save it as a .png, but .gifs are still smaller. Now, if your bettin’ on this image and you want it to make an impression, don’t be cheap and save it as a jpeg. But, if you can spare the pixels (menus, small images, ads, etc), then a .gif is your file.
