Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Comparing image formats, part of Creating EPUBs from a Word Document.
- So, in terms of images, or graphic formats…that we need to be aware of, there are essentially…three image formats and one code format…you need to know about.…Now while it might well be true that there…are other formats that are supported by some devices,…as we are aiming at the broadest possible appeal,…then it makes sense just to focus on those.…So, the three types are JPEG,…jpg suffix normally used for that.…Just in case you're interested, that stands for…Joint Photographic Experts Group,…and it's good for continuous tone images.…
So a continuous tone image, for example,…would be something like one of your photographs.…It's an image where the shift between tones…is difficult to detect.…The JPEG format does not support transparency.…There is one particular format that does…within the JPEG family, because there are a few…different flavors of it, but it isn't widely supported.…So it's best just to say no transparency with JPEG.…There are, however, two formats that do support transparency…and that's PNG and GIF.…
