PNG-Simple gradient

PNG-Illustrations, logos, icons – solid colors

SVG-Same but you have it in the vector

GIF-  are used for more simplistic images, such as icons and decorative images.

  • In most cases in ecommerce, JPEGs will be your best choice. They provide the best quality even for the smallest file size.
  • Never use GIFs for large product images. The file size will be large and there is no way to reduce it. Use GIFs only for decorative images and thumbnails.
  • PNGs file format can be a good alternative to both JPEGs and GIFS. If you are only able to get product photos in PNG format, then try using PNG-8 over PNG-24. PNGs excel is the best choice for simple decorative images because of their extremely small file size.
