Blitapp used to take screenshots as JPEG files. When we took over Blitapp, we switched to better quality PNG images. But these PNG files can have a much larger size size, going over 15MB for a full page screenshot.
Now, you have a choice between JPEG and PNG for all you captures. Click on Advanced Web Options, you will find the new option *Image Quality” to switch between PNG and JPEG.
To give you an idea of the file size and quality for both formats, here are a couple of examples. You can open both images in new tabs to compare the quality:
Amazon product page, 1,280 x 7,941px
Instagram homepage, 1,280 x 10,830px
The difference in terms of file size gets bigger as the screenshot size is bigger, but also depending on how “busy” is the web page.
