ü GIF ("Graphics Interchange Format): Commonly used to display graphics and small animations in web pages. GIF is a compressed format designed to minimize file size and transfer time.

ü JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group): Used to save photographs, JPEG format retains all color information in an image. JPEG is a standard format for displaying images over the web.

ü PSD (Photoshop Document): The standard Photoshop Elements format for images. You should generally use this format for edited images to save your work and preserve all your image data and layers in a single page file.

ü Photoshop PDF (Portable Document Format): A cross-platform and cross-application file format. PDF files accurately display and preserve fonts, page layouts, and both vector and bitmap graphics.

ü TIFF (Tagged-Image File Format): Used to exchange files between applications and computer platforms. TIFF is a flexible bitmap image format supported by most paint, image-editing, and page-layout applications. Most desktop scanners can produce TIFF files.
