Final logo files

JPG or Jpeg (Joint Portable Graphic)

JPG or Jpeg stands for Joint Portable Graphic. According to Wikipedia Jpg is the most used file format on the web. That actually not strange since the size of Jpg is always lower in comparison to Raster formats like PNGs, GIF, TIF

(We Highly Recommend this using JPG 👍)
we highly recommend using JPG if you don’t require a transparent background in the image. but needs a smaller version of the logo file

PNG (Portable Network Graphic)

PNG stands for Portable Network Graphic. it is another raster image type just like JPG. But different than JPG because PNG can have a transparent background. it’s generally Large and better in Quality than JPG of the same image.

(We Recommend this 👍)
We highly recommend using PNG if you need a transparent background in the image and want to use it with a different colored background on the website.
