Jpg is good for the web because it compresses well into a small file sizes but if you want high quality pics for instance to use for print, png is better. I use png files for POD sites.
Save your original files in the format of the program you are using, such as psd, lots of graphics programs can open psd files and you won't lose your layers if you used any.
Layers are the beauty of digital painting because you can move things around without disturbing other elements in the painting, plus you can take layers from different digital paintings and use them to make a whole new painting.

this is just wrong.
png = portablenetwork graphics
printing requires the right dots per inch ( dpi ) and correct color profile ( cmyk - theres online printing companies where you can download color profiles so you get exact results working with the right colors in your graphic program ). and it is literally just that. png is limited to 72dpi so it is a bad choice for printing. it is not enough for bigger prints than a business card. png was invented and designed for screen display. NOT printing. period. you can use jpg. if you want to optimize it you would go for tiff or even photoshop pdf.
And this is what I have had to endure all my life. Maybe we could nip this in the bud and start calling me Dicky? That's what my family and close friends call me. Sorry to be a downer but this has gotten real old with me. Or maybe I can just enjoy the banter.
Richard if I'm in trouble
