Depends on how sharp your reference was.
JPG is a lossy format, depending on the quality you'll get noticable compression artifacts.
GIF and PNG are lossless formats. GIF can only save up to 256 colors with partial transparency (0 or 1). PNG has far superior quality (8/24bit) and can save full transparency, but the filesize will be larger.

That's only true for 24bit pictures, though. 256 colour pictures will be smaller.

Well, 24 bit (or 32-bit which is 8-bit for each channel and alpha; 24-bit means non-transparent image) picture can be smaller too. It really depends what's in the picture since PNG has rather fancy compression optimizations. But enough nitpicking.
