Bahadir has inspired me to post this. I am working on panos for my web site and this one I completed this afternoon. This is 8 pictures stitched together.

I thought I would try posting it as a gif file and see how that turned out. Why do we not used gifs in here?

Very nice indeed Bill: beautiful view that you've done full justice too

The reason we don't use GIF's BTW, is that they don't compress as well as jpg's when dealing with photographic content. They're normally better suited to logo's and the like where there are large blocks of color, and text that needs to be losslessly compressed. jpg's normally give smaller and better quality images for photos. But as ever, your mileage may vary.

HTH, John.

Thanks Everyone,

In building a web site what file type would be best?

Love that pano. I'm going to be spending a few days in Utah in May and I'm tossing up between going to Arches or Zion NP.

Re GIF files.... my understanding is that GIF files only support 256 colours, whereas JPG supports a lot wider colour range and compresses better for complex photos. GIFs are fine for simple images, but for displaying quality photos on your web site I would not use GIF. This is particularly for landscapes with big skies like sunsets where you want lots of colours to get a perfect gradation in the tones of the sky. GIFs, with their more limited colour range, may give you more a more grainy look or even colour steps in the sky if you image has lots of colour variation in it.

Cheers,
Ollie

Thanks Ollie for the information on Gifs.

I have been to both Zion and Arches and for me it is Arches anyday of the week. Zion is ok but mainly if your a hard core hiker. Arches you can hike as much as you want or drive more. Arches is also 30 miles from Dead Horse Point State Park which is a pretty incredible place to see. If you want another place to go I would recommend Bryce Canyon National Park before Zion also. In Bryce you can hike in the hoodoo formations for as long as you want.. pretty spectacular place.

That area really is cool, and you've done a great job of capturing it. I need to head up north this spring.

Ollie, I don't think you will go wrong with any of your Utah choices!
