If a user wants to save images for use on the web, save_for_the_web
is high level thinking and not lame or idiotic.
The choice of format is secondary.
1. save for web
2. use most appropiate format

I know the characteristics of JPG, PNG, GIF. I can usually tell
what will work best. There are border cases, though. Then I have
to experiment and can't formulate save_as_jpg or save_as_my_png
as my initial goal at all.
