Character infobox - to .jpg or to .png?

I saw that the first batch of character infoboxes are being created - and that in some cases, the original .png render (with the transparent backgrounds) has been replaced with a .jpg version (with a white background).

Going forward, would it be best to stick with one format over another?

Personally, I would much prefer going back to the .png files, for those characters which have "clean" images in this format to use. Not only does the transparent background work better (in my view) with the board colour template, the images themselves may perhaps scale more cleanly. (Or at least so I was advised at another wiki where .png files are preferred.) Nerroth (talk) 17:59, September 13, 2015 (UTC)

Hi Nerroth!

I also like the character .png transparent images but seeing that their availability for this game is close to zero, it would be hard trying to be consistent with them.

Especially that when the game comes out, there might be more character pages to be made. The character portraits that people can access to (via the artbook or other sources) will mostly have white backgrounds.
