  • Gif (graphics interchange format)-compressed files with a small colour range so not good to save high quality photos using this.
  • JPEG (joint photographic experts group)-can be compressed and retains all colour information though image can be of high or low quality depending on compression.
  • PSD (photoshop)-to save edited files and data on single page files.
  • PSE (photo creations format)-to save edited files and data on multiple page files.
  • Photoshop PDF (portable document format)-accurately displays images after saving.
  • PNG (portable network graphics)-files can  be compressed more than GIF and do not lose any quality.
  • TIFF (tagged image file format)-can store large high quality images.

I use JPEG the most because I feel it saves and preserves my files to the best quality.
