Saving for web in GIF and PNG


#1

It looks like standard browsers support few image formats, it’s not that many of them.

  1. Jpeg
  2. GIF
  3. PNG

Saving in Jpeg format seems to be OK,
GIF is trickier, because GIF is compresses by limiting number of colors, and selecting how many of those colors to use, which ones to use and selecting a transparency color is essential for web work.
Next, PNG actually has two modes, unlimited color space and fixed palette, just like GIF. So there should be distinction for those.
Is this something in the plans or is there a work around?

We don’t have any plans to support a fixed palette for PNGs right now. We occasionally are asked, but it’s not a high priority.
