Why Do You Need to Use PNG Images in Your Web Design?

The pros of incorporating PNG image format in web designing over various other file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file type works well if you need to make good and efficient web graphics that will wow your consumers

The PNG file type was introduced a few years back; it was brought out for consumers around 95/96 to meet the deficiencies of the popular GIF file format. However, it did not catch on because the early browsers could not offer support to the progressive offerings of PNG so website designers and developers were forced to include it in their designs sparingly. One of the major hurdles standing in the way was Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of the time; IE had little or no provision for PNG support consequently the format could only be incorporated in the most restricted way. However, things metamorphosed after the availability of IE7; this latest product from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is by far the best image formats around today:

You will be able to create transparent images or a property known as alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, it will become apparent that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you can only save a specific color in a transparent format through GIF this equates to the fact that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with nothing in between with the use of PNG, you get a serious feature over GIF; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. With this attribute, you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. You can also use the image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The file type lets you incorporate the smooth fading of colors from fully opaque to see through, exposing the webpage below

They look spectacular: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are numerous other advantages to including this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a part of the data from the original file every time you save the file, so in time, you will be able to view a noticeable deterioration in the appearance of the media. Although, this concern has been resolved in the image format and it is possible to save the pictures without compromising any details, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which makes it quite ineffective if you want to store a photograph. However, when you use PNG, you will get the most desired benefits of both these formats; you will have access to a full color display like the one used in JPEG file type and it also provides managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Another advantage is that the storage of the file is sans loss so the picture stays as it is even if you save the file several times.

PNG allows for self optimization: A serious problem that web programmers face very often is the issue where the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be changed to see the images correctly; the issue comes into the picture due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma is a technique that helps to scatter the luminance across the monitor display. However, various operating systems use distinct Gamma settings. Hence, multimedia that is color corrected for Windows may not look right on a Mac. Once again, in this case the flexible PNG image type can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the pictures with a built in Gamma correction so despite the differences in operating systems; the Gamma settings will be realigned to display a file with the impressive contrast and brightness.
