JPEG or GIF is the most common images saving formats that we have been using for ages. Recently, there are new image formats that have been introduced to the world, and it has been accepted by many due to the functions even though the efficiency is not as the old formats. In developing designing, one of the most crucial parts is image format. The choices of format are vast, and the designers should be able to decide the one that could fit in perfectly. Here are the best three image formats for web design Malaysia:
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is one of the latest vector image format launched in 2011. Other than the usual formats, this is one of the best options to save the images from websites because it delivers clear images no matter what is the size and resolutions. It is also a lossless format just like GIF and PNG. However, it is not a pixels resolution web graphic designer but mathematically driven. That is why it able to gives clear images despite the shapes and curves even support transparency comprises a combination of colours for an animated format. Regardless of the functionality, SVG often comes with a larger file compared to GIF and PNG.
Google developed this format solely for their own software not universalised so that they can provide the image format that single web capable that enables the user to handle specific issues. However, it is a complex format that will block the prediction and the unoriginal VP8 video codec, yet it is a lossless compression that supports animations and transparency. Most of the developers use it as a replacement of other images format that has mentioned before.
These two images formats are co-related, but with two different aspects. HEVC supports multi-frame images with multi-frame compression such as HDR, multi-focus or even the images with multi-views because the file contains the support from the largest feature set across the web image formats. However, HEIF supports many versatile types of non-images data. It is an H265/HEVC video codec, hence it still works as container and compress of images mainly with 4K and 8K resolutions. Nevertheless, the HEVC is a complex process of coding compared to other image formats such as JPEG, but the efficiency is high compression with high-cost coding times.
