Good morning,

I am starting a contract to write an installation guide using photographs or
This is a rush project. As I have only used photos in manufacturing
documents, I'd like some input
on a valid workflow to use.

The documents will be viewed in electronic format which leads me to think
either a jpeg format
or a png format. I am thinking because I have to resize the images, png
format might work best
for image clarity. Is the png format supported in most browsers?

If anyone can point me to good resources/discussion I'd appreciate it. I did
check the list
before posting.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
