Web Image Formats - A Beginner's Guide Infographic

Now here's the infographic I've needed for a long time! Even though I've been blogging for several years, I'm still pretty clueless about the different image formats that are routinely used on the web. Honestly, would you believe I'm still not 100 percent clear on the difference between JPEG and PNG?

I can't blame my ignorance on lack of available information. There are tons of "how to" articles out there about working with images, but I seldom take advantage of them. What I needed was a good infographic that breaks down the various image formats and the best use for each.

I'm posting the infographic below because I'm sure I'll be referring to it often for image use tips. Kudos to Dario Ċ uveljak for explaining a topic that can be tough for non-techies to grasp.
