Open one of your own photos in Serif PhotoPlus. Choose Export from the File menu and save it in turn as a JPEG, a GIF, a BMP (bitmap) and as a PNG file to your images folder without changing the size and at the highest resolution possible.

Call the versions jpegPICXXX, gifPICXXX, bitmapPICXXX and pngPICXXX (replace XXX with your own initials).

Right-click on the file in your folder and choose Properties from the context menu.

Make a note of the different file sizes, dots per inch, number of bits on the worksheet for this activity and compare the picture quality. Can you see any difference?
