Line 1: Line 1:
 +Image file formats on computers can be categorized into two different kinds, the first kind being called //lossy//, the second kind being called //​lossless//​.
  
 +Saving an image in a lossless format means that none of the original information as intended by the creator of the image is lost. 
 +
 +Only lossless formats are suitable for storing pixel art whereas lossy formats will destroy some of that information in favor of a smaller file size and or faster image decoding speed.
