Images will have a better quality if it is not compressed too much but the file size will be larger. It is best if the user choose a image that will best suit their need. Using a GIF or a JPEG file is best to be decided when you decide on what the purpose for using the image for. It is best to keep in mind the JPEG do have good quality when let compression is used but the files size can be very larger and this will cause the page to load at a slower speed. Whereas, the GIF has some limitation, one being it can only display roughly 256 colors. It can display a good quality image that will load fast but only with less color. Again the choice really depends on what it is being used for in your project. Both are really good graphic images to use on a website.
