When downloading an image using a Preset Size or Custom Resize, you can choose whether to download in either JPG or PNG.

Not sure what the difference is or which one to use? Here's a quick guide:

JPG 

(also known as JPEG - they are the same file format)

  • Ideal for photos that you want to use on the web (e.g. website, intranet or social media)

  • Sacrifices some image quality for a smaller file size

  • Converts any transparency in an image to white (so a transparent background on a logo, for example, would get converted to solid white)

PNG

  • Ideal for graphics and logos

  • No loss in image quality, which means the file size will be larger (especially for detailed images like photographs)

  • Supports transparency (so if you have a logo on a transparent background, the background stays transparent)
