PNG Image Files: reply
The images help file says that .png files have the "best alpha." The program that I use to process screenshots can just as easily create .png files as .jpg files. If you know, is one generally better than the other? Is it ok/good to save a .png file named with a .jpg extension for some reason? --[[User:Jreynolds2|Jreynolds2]]<sup>[[User_talk:Jreynolds2|Talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/Jreynolds2|E-mail]]</sup> 05:13, 1 February 2012 (UTC)
: We use JPG for screenshots because it compresses them well and means we can get good-sized images without them taking up too much space. PNG files are great for icons and things that need transparency (which is basically what alpha means) but for game s/shots they take up far too much space. Please don't use the wrong extension - that'll cause even more confusion. Good luck!
