File types that you can use to save a separate graphic file

You can save graphics and objects contained in Office documents as separate files in a variety of file types. Certain graphic file types are more appropriate for specific tasks than are other file types. Use the following table to help you determine which graphic file type is more appropriate for your task.

Note: When you save a graphic contained in an Office application as a separate file, you cannot control the compression or other settings that affect the quality of the image. If you have the original version of a graphic file, you can control the compression and other characteristics of the image by using a dedicated graphic software application to save the file.
