In addition to seconding the above statement I'd like to add that in
cases where you are forced to use a bitmap format png tends to produce
much better results than jpg where line drawings (e.g. most plots) are
concerned. JPG format on the other hand is great for anyting which can be
discirbed as photography-like. jpg images of plots tend to suffer from
bad artifacts...
