PNG (Portable Network Graphics)

PNG is a raster-graphics format. The name PNG is an abbreviation for Portable Network Graphics.

This format was created as an alternative to the GIF format, which also allowed to compress files without a loss (lossless). However, unlike GIF, PNG was free and had no licensing restrictions. In addition, PNG allows you to use much more colors in the image, as well as create images with a transparent background, which is very important for logos and other elements of web graphics. The only thing that PNG did not inherit from its predecessor is the ability to create animations - files containing several images.

Since its inception, the format has come a long way and has occupied a significant niche among graphics formats. However, at the same time, PNG files can be very heavy, which is why it is sometimes preferable to convert them to JPG format for more optimal using.

JPG (Joint Photographic Experts Group)

JPG is an abbreviation for JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group), abbreviated to three letters, as it is more common with file extensions. The Joint Photographic Experts Group is an association of companies and research institutes that created this standard.

JPG has both advantages and disadvantages. The main advantage of the JPG format is that it allows you to compress the image, significantly reducing the file size. Compression works differently depending on the depicted object and can sometimes lead to loss of image quality. However, at the moment, the JPG format also allows the use of lossless compression (lossless JPG).

The JPG format is widely used and is currently one of the most common image formats used on the Internet, being the generally accepted global standard.
