  • Doesn’t a JPG/JPEG have a white background?

The two major ways that images are saved for use are the .jpg and .png formats. Each of these are very prevalent online. JPG is better at compressing images, while PNG has the added benefit where you can have a transparent background. That means any part that isn’t filled in with any color or shade, will allow whatever is behind it to be viewed, while JPG will fill in the gaps with white, even if you attempt to leave it transparent in your own version.

It boils down to this:

PNG allows for a transparent background but is a larger file format. JPG doesn’t allow for a transparent background but is a smaller file format.

  • What good is a transparent background?

Having a transparent background can be really useful for a number of things. It can help you put watermarks onto your images, since you can save your watermark as a .png and then place it over anything you create, and because, as we all now know, .png images have transparent backgrounds, that means you’ll see the image below your watermark!

  • How can I tell my background will come out transparent?
