Tips for Using Images in Blogs

This post on the 'Google Blogoscoped' blog hints on some helpful things to remember, when using images in your blog posts.

Good read, except that they seem to dislike the GIF format, which I use frequently on my websites. Being a web designer, I would prefer to use GIF-formatted images on my site than PNG ones. Why?

When displaying graphics with transparent portions (such as a curved border for a section), GIF is the only way to go. This is because IE6 doesn't fully support PNG transparency, and will cause problems when using PNGs, more often than not.

There seems to be some efforts to solve this, but a workaround is always a workaround.
