JPEG The Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) file format is commonly used to display photographs and other continous tone RGB images on the World Wide Web. JPEG formats retains all the colour information in an image but compresses file size by selectively discarding data. The greater compresseion, the lower the image quality, and vice versa.

PSD The Photoshop format (PSD) is the default format. Because of the tight intergration between other Adobe applications such as Illustrator, InDesign, and Adobe Muse can directly import PSD files and preserve many of the Photoshop features.
