PNG - Portable Graphics Format - is a type of raster image file widely used across the internet. They are widely compatible with plenty of software applications. Unlike JPG files, PNG files have lossless data compression, which means they can be reduced in size without losing data and overall image quality. They also have the ability to read transparent backgrounds, making them great for logos and other icons that tend to be displayed over pictures. You’ll find that most online applications support PNGs, and they are commonly used for digital photographs as well as graphics.
TIFF - Tagged Image File Format - is a raster image that contains a lot of data and is generally extremely high quality. Because of this, the file size tends to be quite large, so it’s not an easy file to upload or share quickly. You’ll likely come acrossa TIFF files in professional photography and when you scan high-quality images, but it’s not something ever used in web graphics. It’s one of the highest quality image file types available, so use it when you’re planning on printing photos at a very high quality or scaling them up to a massive size. Think billboard advertising and other huge printed photographs.
TIFF files are commonly used in digital photography and are extremely high-quality images. Usually, photos that come straight out of a digital camera are in TIFF format if they’re not compressed into a JPG. PNG files, on the other hand, are suited to web graphics because of their transparent layer. You might have a photograph in a PNG format that you’d prefer to have in a TIFF format.
