A picture is worth a thousand words. Sometime, a simple picture can explain a complex idea a lot better than couple of words.
Pictures on the web
When you want to put picture on the web, you want it to be as small in size (not necessarily in dimension) as possible. This is because that picture needs to be downloaded by the visitors of the website. The smaller the size of the picture, the faster it is downloaded. To get a picture with smaller size, it is usually saved in format that can still represent its content without loss much of its human perception properties such as color. For this reason, common format used for the web are: JPG/JPEG, GIF, and PNG.
