I started on my website, I have created a logo in .psd but when I create an image link, it doesn't show up, I imported it into fireworks, and changed it to jpg, because photoshop wouldn't let me, then I could see it, but for some reason it looks pixelated, and of bad quality, I will admit I just recently started using photoshop, I don't want to be a graphic designer, but I am trying to learn enough to do.
logo's, backgrounds when needed, banners when needed, and general photo manipulation, I have learnt a lot just working with my logo, but I ran into this problem. Thanks. and a .psd file is so heavy, it is going to cramp up my web page's load time, and that is somethign I definitely don't want, as with .jpg, .bmp(i don't like using this), and .gif(don't much care for this either), it doesn't do that. Even in fireworks a .swf file(that and flash) even have a less of a size that the .psd, what should I do with this, to still retain the quality you can only get from photoshop.

MAJOR EDIT- I have completely fixed the problem. I was unable to switch it to jpg, and other types of formats because I had the rgb set too high up to be able to get that format. I lowered the rgb, and .jpg, and all the other familiar ones appeared there. Thanks.

you should be using "save for web" in photoshop to adjust your image quality and size for web work.

You should also try .png I've noticed that those files have the best quality on websites.

I tried playing with theme some but the overall size seemed bigger than jpg That is why I opted to jpg, and when they are optimized I still see the same results.

Aye, PNG is beautiful - but stupid IE doesn't do PNG transparency/opacity. Gotta love IE.

Why can't I get any vector based images to appear on the website. I try to use any extension(other than flash files), and none of them work, including the direct photoshop extensions, it allways shows a big X until I switch them over to jpg.

The only types of image you can display are image types supported by browsers (big surprise:)) .gif,.jpg, and - with some browsers .png
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

so if some browsers don't support .png then I need to avoid those as well.

They support PNG, just not transparency and opacity in those browsers.

there is also a right and wrong time to use certain file types. .jpg should be used for photographs or high resolution images, .gif should be used for images with less colors and gradients. I've never really worked with .png, I prefer to use .gif.
