i would like to know that while slicing my psd design to html i export images as "png8" or "png24".
I need to have transparent round corner images but they are big images so PNG is the prefered format but which is best and which will load faster.
at present i m using 24bit format but its making file sizes larger.
what format do you use in your html.

If png8 works, I tend to use that. If not transparent, it works in IE6 too, which is handy.

transparent pngs won't work in IE6 at least because I believe it doesn't support the alpha channel.
For png I generally use 8bit. I do use 24bit when I'm using a color to transparent background.
If IE7+ supports it then it should be less of an issue

What he said. And IE6 does not support transparency through the alpha channel, requiring fixes such as TwinHelix's.
