So, you’ve just created your masterpiece in Over and now you want to export it. But in which format?
Knowing the basics about image file formats is super helpful for getting the most out of your designs.
Here’s everything you need to know (in a jiffy)…
- Designing something for the web? Use JPEG.
- Need a transparent logo or icon? Use PNG.
- Printing your design? Use PDF.
And here’s everything you need to know (in a jiffy-ish)…

PNG’s can be partly transparent. Sounds strange for an image, right? It makes sense when you have a stand-alone web graphic, like an icon or a logo, and you want to layer this onto another asset. When you export your image as a PNG file, the space around your graphic will remain transparent so that you can place it seamlessly into a sales ad or email signature, for example.
