    GIF
    Use for moderate gradient-type graphics, transparent images, and and any flat color image that cannot be created through css.

    File size is small.

    PNG
    Use for more intense gradients and images with layer effects (Ps). Great for icons if a GIF doesn't provide optimal quality. Can be used for photos.

    File size is usually quite large.

    JPG
    Use for all types of photos, and for more intense graphics where PNG sile size is too large.

    File size is comparable.
