"Only .jpeg, .gif, and .png files can be used for images in WordPress. All cropped images will be converted to jpegs. Using an image of exactly the right size will produce the best results, and this is certainly recommended. To preserve transparency in an image use a .gif or .png image of exactly the right size."
