I prefer PNG over JPG for photos to avoid the "artifact spots" in JPG files. There are some good PNG optimizers which reduce notably the original size without losing quality at all. Also, you can manipulate quite succesfully the number of colors in PNG files mantaining original look and so reducing file size. even if result is somewhat less cororful. Rising the compresson factor of JPG files results in blurred, low quality images. By the way, JPG "compresion" is actually a degradation of quality and it's irreversible.
