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

The advanatges of using PNG images in website creation over the different file types like GIF and JPEG; the file format works well if you need to make bettergood and wonderful icons that will wow your customers.

The PNG image format was introduced a few years back; it was put forth in the marketlfor consumers around 95/96 to cover the drawbacks of the the common GIF file type. However, it did not catch on because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the advanced features of PNG so internet designers and developers had to incorporate it sparingly. One of the main hindrances that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of that period; IE had very little place for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be used in the most restricted way. But went through a change with the introduction of IE7; this new product from Microsoft has helped in increasing the utility of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is by far the the most useful image formats in the market today:

It is possible to create tranparent images or a property known as alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, you will see that A defnitve difference in the two formats is that you can only save a specific color as transparent in GIF which means that you can get the color whether opaque or transparent with nothing in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get adistinct advantage; because the format can be used to roduce semi tranparency. This simply means that you can save a PNG file with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. You can also use the image as a watermark or a gradient background. The format lets you incorporate the glardual fading ofshades from entirely opaque to transparent, so that you can see the webpage that lies in the background

They lookspectacular: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also ; there are numreous other benefit to incorporating this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a portion of the details from the initial image whenever you save the file, so eventually, you will be able to view a distinct decline in the finesse of the images. Even though, this problem has now been sortedbeen resolved in the image format and it is possible to store the pictures without losing any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which rendersimpart it quite futile if you have to store a snap shot. However, with PNG, you could get the most desired attributes of of the image formats; you will have access to a a complete color display like with JPEG file type and it also}{supports| provides|offers} managed color palette {like|a la| as seen in} GIF files. {Also|At the same time|Another advantage is that} the {compression|storage} of the {file|image|picture} is {lossless|sans loss|without loss} so the {image|picture|photograph} {stays put|stays as it is|does not change} {regardless of how many time you save it|despite innumerable times of saving the file|even if you save the file several times}.
