So im not much of a computer guy other than the hours i spend looking at silly cats on the internet, could someone explain the differences and/or pros and cons of PNG and JPEG?   
have a Spiderman for your trouble

The side of the guy arguing for .png is saved to look like a .png file...
Smooth and crisp.

Where as the .jpg guy looks like it was saved as a .jpg...
blurry and lossey

Without going into massive details, typically PNG have much higher resolutions and are of higher quality., while JPEGs are smaller and take up less memory.

Sooo, does bitmap have any useful purpose?

In indie games (going mostly by SCP Containment Breach here), it tends to be what the programmers use to define textures.

For some reason this reminded me of the argument between PC and Mac.
User avatar #48 to #47 - generic (01/31/2013) [-]
kinda, but this one has easier accessed evidence.
User avatar #50 to #48 - timbalisto (01/31/2013) [-]
That's a good point. I guess one will never be completely better, just different. Oh **** , my name is blue now, I wonder when that happened.

I was thought that - JPEG is better for more colours (For example: Camera images) and PNG's are better for less colours, also take less space most of the time, which is helpful in web design

Let's not forget PNG's incredible ability to keep an image's transparency. ******* JPEG just makes it white.

I never save anything in any format but the default.
User avatar #39 to #37 - thepalmtoptiger (01/31/2013) [-]
That's fine when you're just uploading random **** to the internet, but when you're using GIMP or Photoshop then it is kind of a big deal because you want to retain your layers.
User avatar #43 to #40 - thepalmtoptiger (01/31/2013) [-]
One day you'll use a more advanced image processor and you'll look back on this day and think "What an asshole, the default format for this program saves everything anyway!"

PNGs just look so much cleaner.

Why would you ever use .jpg than?
#38 to #32 - noschool (01/31/2013) [-]
A JPG is a lossy compressed file format this makes it useful for storing photographs at a smaller size than other formats JPGs are a common choice for use on the Web because it is compressed while PNGs are for line art, text-heavy images, and images with few colors.

if people saved their jpegs at highest quality there wouldn't be any problems
User avatar #44 to #25 - TheMather ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
Only Photoshop has a quality option for jpegs.
User avatar #186 to #44 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (01/31/2013) [-]
So does GIMP, Blender, After Effects, Flash, and a lot of other graphics programs. I can only think of MS Paint as a widely used image program that doesn't have that option.
User avatar #187 to #186 - TheMather ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
Ok, GIMP is just a wannabe Photoshop and Blender, After Effects and Flash aren't even the same cathegory of software (added to which that the latter two are also produced by Adobe and often packaged together with Photoshop).
For commonly used image editing software that don't have it, there's Paint.Net, Paint Tool SAI, Picaza, Paintshop Pro and countless others.
User avatar #190 to #187 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (01/31/2013) [-]
All the programs I listed are very widely used and specialize in different types of images, for example Blender is primarily 3D whereas Flash is used for vexel and cartoon graphics. GIMP is only modeled after Photoshop because the latter defined the industry; GIMP is damn good at what it does and it's open source to boot.

As for those programs you listed, from what I've seen SAI does in fact have quality settings. Painshop Pro has compression levels, which is essentially the same feature inverted. As for those other two, I must have the wrong link because You need to login to view this link appears to be a website about studio paint, and Picasa is pretty much instagram for the PC so I don't doubt it's light on features.
User avatar #191 to #190 - TheMather ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
You need to login to view this link is the name of the software, the reason for the suffix is because it's part of the You need to login to view this link framework, it's actually downloaded at
User avatar #192 to #191 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (01/31/2013) [-]
This appears to have a jpeg quality feature as well.
User avatar #193 to #192 - TheMather ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
Wrong, that "Dithering" or whatever thing is there to lower quality, and it works for any format. You can't use it to improve jpeg quality, the highest setting is equivalent to a standard quality.
#205 to #193 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (01/31/2013) [-]
I think we may be thinking of different functions.

(these are in fact the save settings for jpeg format)
User avatar #208 to #205 - TheMather ONLINE (02/01/2013) [-]
Never noticed. Must be because I always use .png.
User avatar #209 to #208 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (02/01/2013) [-]
Yep, you, uh... you've got me there, I guess.
User avatar #210 to #209 - TheMather ONLINE (02/01/2013) [-]
No, no, you were the one that got me. You were right after all, I just said why I was mistaken.
User avatar #213 to #210 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (02/01/2013) [-]
Alright, sorry, it just looked like you were being antagonistic there.
User avatar #214 to #213 - TheMather ONLINE (02/01/2013) [-]
And now you're apologizing for trying to hand me your victory. Have some pride, man, this was your victory.
User avatar #215 to #214 - pseudobob **User deleted account** (02/01/2013) [-]
Well I don't want to rub it in your face, and it's not like I'm suddenly right in the end. I was always right :) hue hue hue anyway to be honest I've got to hand it to you, admitting defeat is not something I am usually able to do. When someone else does it I'm obligated to give them some respect, being a better man and all. Although not necessarily the correct man!

I hope you aren't leaving this with any sour feelings. If there's one thing we should always be neutral on, it's computers.
User avatar #216 to #215 - TheMather ONLINE (02/01/2013) [-]
Of course not, I'll readily accept my defeat. It was my own fault for talking about something I hadn't completely familiarized myself with.
