E-Prime 2.0 allows for image formats *.bmp, *.jpg, *.jpeg, *gif, *.png, *.tif, *.tiff, *.emf, *.wmf
NOTE: Animated GIF files are not supported.
Compressed image formats require additional CPU time to expand. Therefore, additional PreRelease will need to be factored for your paradigms to avoid OnsetDelay values.
In general, using a JPG is aprx six times slower than a BMP version of the same image.
