Comparing figure types for Publication

This is from the Microsoft website

Figure out the best file format for your task

When you save your document, data and workbooks, or presentation as a Web page in Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) format, all graphics (including drawing objects and pictures) are saved in GIF, JPEG, or PNG format so that they can be viewed in a Web browser.
If you reopen the Web page in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint, the graphics will be in their original file formats so that you can still edit them as you normally would.
Post an image on a Web pageXX
Export easily to other computer imaging programsXX
Compress a large image to create a small file to send in e-mailXX
Use transparent areas in imagesXX
Create animation filesX
Decompress images without loss of qualityXX
Create highest quality images (for publishing, etc.)X
Display millions of colors in an imageXXXX
Retain image quality through numerous savesXXXX
 NOTE   The formats that are generally used for Web pages are GIF and JPEG. When you add a graphic other than a GIF or JPEG to a page and then save it, FrontPage automatically converts the graphic to a GIF if it has 8 bits of color or less, or to a JPEG if it has more than 8 bits of color.
