These time signatures are part of the series of Printable, Scalable Vector Black Music Notation Symbols. All carefully crafted music notation symbols in this series are proportional to each other upon delivery to meet the standards of music professionals who know the difference and for anyone who appreciates high quality music images.
In addition, two EPS vector formats allow scalability (resizing) without loss of quality, unlike typical Web image formats (GIF, JPG, PNG). If you wish to resize them and maintain these proportions, just resize each music symbol image by the same amount.
For more music notation images in a variety of styles, colors, and sizes, see our Music Notation Symbols Images section.

PNG versions in this series are large file sizes created for print and thus not recommended for Web use without optimizing them and using the appropriate format.

GIF(with or without transparency) or
PNG-8format (without transparency).
GIFformat is supported by the most browsers at this point, although the latest versions of the most common browsers now support transparent
PNG(Firefox 2+, Internet Explorer 7+, for example). So, for now the easiest format to use for the most browsers to see your transparent images as you intend is still transparent
GIF. See PNG-supporting Browsers for more information.
