some mixed signals here
im a professional graphic designer working for a print company—just to throw in my credentials there—and at our company we actually use PDF exclusively for all our internal image files. PDFs can be saved as lossless image files that retain their photoshop or illustrator layers (not both, afaik). PDF is actually a fantastic format for image purposes. i think of it as kind of a very widely compatible “shell” format. they’re nicer than PSD in that you can just throw them any old where and you don’t need photoshop to open them.
now i havent done any hardcore research on the way the different file types work, but as i have come to understand it, PNG is primarily best for web graphic usage. it results in clean, uncompressed graphics and can be made transparent while retaining 100% of its color information (unlike GIF, which is really only used today for animations. i want animated PNGs to be a thing so badly so we can phase gif out, it’s an extremely archaic/limited format).
JPG is good for photographs and archival purposes. it is a lossy format, and compromises detail/clarity for file size. however, if you save a jpg at maximum quality it’s basically the same as a PNG file. (i just went and saved and resaved an image four times in a row as a max-quality jpg to make sure of this and the final, which had been resaved as a jpg four times, was identical to the source PNG.) at my place of work 300DPI jpgs are absolutely fine if they’ve been saved at a high quality. honestly almost anything that’s at 300DPI and saved at max quality is good for printing.
i dont really know anything about TIFF except i think it’s JPG on drugs and possibly doesn’t compress? it’s more of a photographer’s format, i think. EPS and AI are more or less the same sort of file. you want to save vectored things, like logos etc, as those types. or as PDFs! an illustrator PDF functions the same as an eps/ai file.
tl;dr as long as it’s big enough and saved at max quality, almost any image will do almost anywhere. and if you’re printing, it’s ideal to work in CMYK. printers can’t replicate the nigh-infinite color range of RGB—RGB by its nature functions by virtue of having a backlit screen. bright purples and greens, for example, tend to end up muddy and washed out, and yellows almost never turn out the way you want on the first go. yellow is the hardest color to print.
that was long and probably no one wanted it, but there u go. please dont jump up my ass about anything ive said here i would appreciate that.
Here has been what most of my drawing time has been committed to. Please excuse my handwriting.
