I know that this seems the easiest part of your work, but actually it isn’t. Saving and publishing is as important as your design, because imagine that you worked 4 hours on a banner and you don’t know how to save it or publish it on the right way.
Doesn’t seem like a waste of time ?
So, let’s start with saving.
Every time, during a project we suggest you to save your work. You don’t know when your computer, software or electricity will run off, so it’s better to save your progress and if something happens, you don’t have to start everything from the beginning.
Another important aspect of saving process is the right format of your banner. Depends on what you would like to do with your banner, you have to choose the right format. Some platforms may not support all the formats, so we suggest you to save it in a more common format so you can easily upload it on any platform. Bannersnack supports format like JPG, SWF(Flash), GIF and PNG. I think that those are most common formats and are accepted all over the internet.
JPEG – (seen most often with the .jpg or .jpeg filename extension) is a commonly used method of lossy compression for digital images and can be uploaded on almost any platforms.
SWF – is an abbreviation for small web format, an Adobe Flash file format used for multimedia, vector graphics and ActionScript.
GIF – The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 . GIFs are suitable for sharp-edged line art (such as logos) with a limited number of colors. This takes advantage of the format’s lossless compression, which favors flat areas of uniform color with well defined edges.
PNG – Portable Network Graphics is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF), and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet.
