Which type of file should I use?

JPEG

Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) files are best suited for photo images and complex graphics. JPEG files can support over 16 million colors and are most commonly used for small image files on websites or email. This format loses image quality when compressed and saved and does not work well for line drawings, text or simple graphics.

EPS

Encapsulated PostScript (EPS) files are vector formatted and sometimes combined with raster (bitmap) graphic files. EPS files are your best choice if exchanging and/or printing high-resolution and layered images. Resizing or compressing vector files does not result in a loss of image quality.
