File or Image data type? Some guidance needed

I’m building an app that will primarily be used to deliver graphic designs to clients to review.

Most of the work we do is images and I am going to need the images to load and be visible inside of the browser window.

However, we will also deliver things like PDFs, spreadsheets, videos etc. - Some of these will need to be viewable in the browser, some won’t.

I have “Thing” called a Deliverable. The deliverable will have a field for whatever the file is…

I’m unsure if I should select “File” or “Image” and what the implications are of each…

It seems like choosing “File” would cover all of the potential things we would want to upload - but will we be able to display images if they are uploaded as a “file” data type?
