Since we are all uploading our images back to Astrobin frown.gif , I was wondering, what is the best image format for the web, which one are you using?

 

Thank you,

.png, which astrobin uses, is pretty universally readable.  .jpg saves space, lower quality.  .tiff is a possibility, similar to .png.  .fits is the professionals choice, it has a very good header.

I'm not uploading anything until we get the full story, which Salvatore has promised tomorrow. And maybe not even then. I think a little patience is called for.

Right. Why on earth would anybody be re uploading already to AB, days after a catastrophic failure? Is Sal encouraging upload already?

Yes he is.  The files that are gone are gone.  They aren't coming back, ever.  So if you want your images back, you have to re-upload them.

Did I miss something or was the question about uploading to the web generally, not astrobin specifically?
