Well we've got a capture. How about storing it?
Screenshots can be stored in the following formats:
- PDF (Portable Document Format).
- PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format: provides lossless way to store graphical data. In addition, PNG structure allows saving additional user-defined information. This feature is used for storing vector objects and other editor info inside PNG.
- JPEG (Joint Picture Expert Group) format creates mostly less file size, but worse picture quality than PNG does.
- BMP (Bitmap Picture) format creates good quality picture, but its size is bigger than PNG and JPEG practically.
- GIF (Graphics Interchange format) - less size, less quality.
- ZIP file: all program output described earlier can be put to ZIP. This can dramatically reduce output file size.
