    I prefer Gif Color Lowering because it can do a better job sometimes. Plus makes images really small and tweaked
    edit: Photoshop has a "Save for the web feature" works like a charm with Gif Color lowering

    If you set your JPEG compression to 10% or lower, they usually don't look that bad. The only time I use GIF is for animation or transparent background.

    I find GIF compression works great on "window screenshots" cause u can lower the colors alot and not lose much. (even windows xp's themes dont use that much)

    I'm starting to create my [crappy, low-skill] images (for a possible website) using the PNG format. The bad thing is, not all browsers fully support it. Mozilla, no problem, but IE just doesn't get the colors right.

    Same here. Prefer JPG normally, GIF only for animations or a replacement for flash.

    your right PNG looks different on IE..you should just use gif&#39;s or jpeg&#39;s. Jpegs are a little bigger than PNG i think but GIF&#39;s are smaller than PNG.

    @ I.am I use GIF&#39;s on all my pictures unless its a really tiny picture....then i just use bitmap.

    Jpeg forever&#33; I can usually compress really well with Jpeg anyway, but use GIF for animation, transparency and 2-3 -colour images maybe with antialiasing (64 colours or below).

    In Adobe Photoshop 7&#39;s "Save for the web" feature....it&#39;s a total toolkit of compression tweaking.. really does amazing GIF compression. The Jpeg also allows slight blur to remove the fuzz
