gif and png are (normally) lossless compression.  They are intended for 
graphs and such that only use a few colors.

jpg and tiff are intended for pictures with zillions of colors.  jpg is 
normally lossy and tiff is normally lossless.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
