Why Is it In Your Best Interest To Use PNG Image Format in Your Website Creation?

The advantages of using PNG image format in web designing over the different file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the image format works well if you need to make better and efficient web graphics that will wow your consumers

The PNG file type was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out for consumers around 95/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional GIF file format. However, it did not make an impression because the then browsers were not designed to support the state of the art offerings of PNG so web designers and creators were compelled to include it in their designs restrictedly. One of the primary blocks standing in the way was Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of that period; IE had very little provision for PNG support which meant that the format could only be made use of in limited capacity. Then, things metamorphosed when IE7 was brought out; this fresh offering from Microsoft has aided in increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is one of the most innovative image formats in the market today:

It is possible to create transparent images or alpha transparency: When you compare PNG with GIF, will notice that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you can only save a particular color transparently through the use of GIF this simply means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with no other color 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 file with a soft drop shadow and then use it against a background of your choice. You can also use the image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The image file type allows for the gradual fading of shades from fully opaque to transparent, exposing the webpage below

They look fabulous: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also; there are numerous other advantages to incorporating this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a portion of the data from the initial image every time the file is saved, so after a while, you will be able to see a noticeable decline in the quality of the images. Even if, this issue has been resolved in in the file type and you can save the files without losing any details, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which renders it quite useless if you want to save a picture. But, with PNG, you will get the perfect features of the two file types; you get a full color display like with JPEG images and it also offers managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Another advantage is that the storage of the image is without loss so the photograph stays put regardless of how many time you save it.

PNG is self optimizing: A major concern that web designers need to handle very often is the fact that the contrast and brightness of the commuter screen has to be regulated to see the images correctly; the issue comes into the picture due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma is a method used to distribute the luminance across the screen. However, various operating systems use varying Gamma settings. So, an image that is color corrected specifically for Windows will seem wrong when seen on Mac. Here again, in this situation the versatile PNG format comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can save the files with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to show an image with the perfect ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
