EDIT: Oh nooooooooooooooo a DD.
[Not to sound ungrateful, I mean it's a honorable gesture, and I understand how this tutorial is relevant to deviantart users,] but AUUUGH I HAVE WAAAY more important tutorials in my gallery that benefit the abilities of artists XD. How about Perspective & Composition Part 1 or 2? [link]
FFFFFFFffffffffffffffffffffffff -- I think I need to start adding a "DO NOT DD THIS" tag to some of my quickies like this because it's what seems to get featured lately XD Now I gotta wait another 2 or 3 months for another chance
Thanks for now, anyway.
IN THE MEANTIME please check out these:
ORIGINAL: The filetypes listed in this tutorial are intended for ARTISTS looking for the best method to export their work to the web, and beginners who want to know the best formats to use among the MANY that Photoshop supports. Thus, only a basic [and very necessary] 4 or 5 formats are discussed, instead of going over EVERY single type, which would possibly just confuse some readers more.
I wrote this tutorial based on my own observations of using photoshop for 10+ years, and exporting work during this entire time. I understand not everyone uses these file types, and you may want to be vocal about the format YOU like to use, but you can't deny that these types are worth talking about to a person who knows NOTHING about them. Better to be informed than not!Supplemental image: [link]
A comprehensive layout of every JPG quality setting, and it's effects on a single image.
I see a lot of people save images as the wrong format, or with bad settings applied to them.
I'm here to help some of you who may have wondered what file formats you should be using understand which ones you SHOULD be using.
