Downloading Artwork from the Web – What Should You Use?

gif? .jpg? .tif? .eps? When you need to download artwork from a Web site, selecting a format can be confusing. Here’s a quick guide to choosing one that will work best for your needs.

GIF (.gif – Graphics Interchange Format): Smallest file size, quickest to download, and most popular for Web and HTML usage. It also has the worst image quality. Use GIFs for Web use only, never for print.

JPEG (.jpg – Joint Photographic Experts Group): Most common format for photographic (or “continuous tone”) images on the Web, even print, depending on file size. JPEGs are smaller than TIFFs by compressing selective digital data. The quality is greater than GIFs but less than TIFFs. You can use decompressed JPEGs for print, but they must be the same size or smaller, and at least 200 dpi (“dots per inch”). 300 dpi is preferable for print.

EPS (.eps – Encapsulated PostScript): Ideal for vector graphics (images made up of lines and curves instead of dots and subtle shade gradations). Fonts, and many logos, for example, are vector graphics. Unlike photos, they can be enlarged dramatically without any loss of resolution. EPS files, like TIFFs, are large files that take longer to download. EPS files are excellent for print, but you need a Postscript-enabled printer to output the image accurately.


GIF - fast download speed because of small file size, but relatively poor visual quality. For Web use only, never print.
JPEG - for photos in Web and print use. Print quality of photos will be somewhat inferior to a TIFF.
EPS - for line art, logos with no subtle dot gradations, fonts, vector art. Yes, you can convert photos to EPS files, but the file size will be much larger than that of a TIFF. Most commercial print/design companies have the equipment and technology to work with EPS files.
