It's not a question of which one is superior. That will get you into an endless argument. LOLYou missed my point, Mark. Moving to another application to do the conversion takes time. I want to minimize the time I spend, not spend the extra time.You want JPEG export. I know others that would like Photoshop PSD files. Yet others will want TIFF, or BMP or other esoteric formats. Should Inkscape support them all, or would it be better to export one or two formats and allow the user to use another application to convert to whatever they want?
Why do you think JPG is superior to PNG for export?
It's a question of which format, of any kind, best suits the needs of the project. Nothing more, nothing less. For the project at hand, we don't need transparency, and we don't need a file as large as PNG files can be.
Plus, others involved in the company, may or may not be able to handle the resulting image if it's a PNG. Not to mention others may never have heard of PNG. :-)
My friend's supervisor does everything in MS Publisher. Get the picture? LOL
