I'm exporting slides from PowerPoint to Camtasia. I'm then importing the published .mp4 into another e-learning software before publishing for our LMS.
For the PowerPoint export, which file type would be preferable -- .png. or .jpg?
I appreciate your help!
.png is a loss-less compression and retains more image information but bigger file size
.jpg is a lossy compression which discards some information but smaller file size
If you need to retain transparency ie; transparent background and/or possible scale up (still with limitation) than .png is what you need
If file size is the goal and very limited scaling than .jpg is the better choice.
The visual difference as far as on the web is usually not noticeable scaling and transparency aside.
