    <span style='font-family:Comic Sans MS'>.png is the best

    u should NEVER save as a .gif unless it's an animation

    start reading where it says ".APNG Support"

    He said it all. You can use TIFF and PNG as they are the best formats in images and cannot be beaten at quality.

    I prefer to use .PNG 99% for still images and 1% JPG for useless images.

    For animation file I always use .GIF as its your only option :)

    PNG is fairly lossless compression compared to Jpegs, so I use PNG.

    Used to use TGA files years ago, but for them to hold an alpha channel reduces them to 16bit images...bleh.
