Usage

This template should be insert on raster images which are in wrong image formats and therefore have lost quality. For instance:

Compression artefact
Loss of image transparency
Loss of color depth
  1. Cartoon or screenshots of computer software in JPEG format that are plagued with compression artifact
  2. Images in GIF format that have lost their color depth
  3. Items like logo and computer icons which have completely or partially lost their transparency and/or have a solid border

This template should not be used for:

  1. Images for which only a JPEG source is available and will not become significantly smaller as a result of a conversion
  2. Animated GIF images
  3. Vector images (SVG should be used in this case)
  4. Size reduction, which is possible through a direct conversion

This template automatically adds images to Category:Images which should be in PNG format.
