Why Do You Need to Use PNG Image Format in Your Website Creation?

The pros of incorporating PNG images in web designing over the different file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file type helps to make good and wonderful icons that will wow your consumers

The PNG file type was introduced some time ago; it was put forth in the market in the mid 90's to meet the deficiencies of the the common GIF file format. However, it failed to create ripples because the early browsers were not designed to support the advanced features of PNG so web designers and developers had to include it in their designs restrictedly. One of the main hindrances standing in the way was Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of that period; IE had little or no space for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be made use of in the most restricted way. However, things changed after the availability of IE7; this latest browser from Microsoft has aided in increasing the utility of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats around today:

It is possible to create see through images or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you will only be able to save any odd color transparently through the use of GIF which means that the color can be used regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in between; however, with PNG, you get a serious advantage; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. This feature gives you the ability to save a PNG image with a soft drop shadow and then use it against a background of your choice. The Image can also be used as a watermark or a gradient background. The format allows for the slow fading of colors from fully opaque to absolutely transparent, exposing the webpage underneath

They look fabulous: 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 choose a JPG image, you lose a portion of the data from the original file each time the file is saved, so eventually, you will be able to view a noticeable decline in the quality of the pictures. Even though, this concern has been resolved in GIF and you can save the images without losing any data, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which imparts it quite ineffective if you are going to save a picture. But, with PNG, you could get the best attributes of the two file types; you will have access to an extensive color display like with JPEG images and it also offers managed color palette like GIF files. Also the storage of the image is lossless so the photograph stays as it is regardless of how many time you save it.

PNG is self optimizing: A major concern that web designers have to tackle frequently is the issue where the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be regulated to see the pictures properly; this problem occurs due to the difference in the Gamma setting used for the different monitors. Gamma setting is a technology used to spread the the light across the display surface. However, different operating systems use distinct Gamma settings. Therefore, multimedia that is color corrected specifically for Windows may not look right on a Mac. Again, in this case the innovative PNG image type can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the pictures with an inherent Gamma correction feature so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to show an image with the impressive contrast and brightness.
