Image Formats
 

We can except the following image types;

 

.jpg or .jpeg - The Joint Photographic Experts Group format is commonly used to display photographs and other continuous-tone images in hypertext markup language (HTML) documents over the World Wide Web and other online services.

 

.bmp - Bitmap. BMP is the standard Windows image format on DOS and Windows-compatible computers. The quality of Bitmaps is considerably lower when compared to other formats.

 
.gif or .giff - The Graphics Interchange Format is the file format commonly used to display indexed-colour graphics and images in hypertext markup language (HTML) documents over the World Wide Web and other online services. GIF is designed to minimise file size and electronic transfer time.
 
 
Media Formats
 
Video
 
.mov Quicktime: This is a popular video format created by Apple. It is native to Macintosh, but the software is available for Windows. Quicktime 4 introduced streaming capabilities.
 
.mpeg: Moving Picture Experts Group. There are several versions, MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 being the most common. MPEG-1 includes the mp3 audio format, and is full motion video, but at a reduced screen size. MPEG-2 is the format used by DVD Video for full motion, full screen video.
 
Audio
 
.mp3: MPEG-1 Layer-3 audio, mp3 is a popular format with CD quality sound at a compression ratio about 10:1. Multimedia formats such as Shockwave and Flash use mp3 to deliver audio. mp3 can be streamed, but is not preferable since CD-quality audio is still 128 kbps. There are better formats for streaming such as RealAudio or Windows Media.
 
.wav: Waveform audio format, the native audio format for Windows computers. This format is not compressed and cannot be streamed, although browsers can usually play this without third-party plug-ins. Not recommended for audio longer than a few seconds.
