Dear fellow social media users, please post screen shots as PNG, not as JPEG image files

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/08/01

I still see many people post screen shots as JPEG images.

JPEG images introduce distortion, and usually are bigger than PNG images.

The PNG images are more crisp, and have more vibrant colors.

So dear fellow social media users: please post screen shots as PNG images.

Comparison: the JPEG on the left is 120 kilobyte, the PNG on the right only 60 kilobyte and looks much better.

  1. If it’s not important the preservation all of the original colors, you can still reduce the file size if using adaptive palette: http://not-doing.ru/some/png-optimized.png (22 KB)
