JFIF versus PNG: What is the difference?

Both JFIF and PNG are image file formats for storing image data. However, there are some differences between the two. On the one hand, JFIF is a raster image file format. Furthermore, it is almost identical to the more famous JPG file format. It stores the image information in a raster and can apply different image compression levels. It does not allow any transparency channels.

PNG, on the other, allows alpha channels, and therefore supports transparency. It supports both lossy and lossless compression. If you want to use images on the web, both file formats are a good choice in general. If you need transparency layers you need to go for PNG. If you do not need alpha channels, you can choose JPG, which usually loads quicker. There is also a few alternative for JPG and PNG which is WebP. This next-generation format offers still better compression, and flexibility and supports animated images.
