Hi all,

I have a question (that will most likely spark a debate):

Do you save your screen captures in .GIF format or .JPG format?

Our screen captures are used in MS Word for printed documentation and then
converted to html, so we need them to be either a .gif or .jpg file, and
they
all have less than 256 colors. I've been told by a graphics expert friend
that .GIF files are generally used for original artwork (i.e., buttons,
banners, logos, etc.)
and animations, while .JPG files are strictly reserved for photos.

Are screen captures artwork or are they photos?
Which file format is better for screen captures that will end up being
viewed in a web browser?
