Why Should You Use PNG Image Format in Your Web Design?

The pros of incorporating PNG image format in web designing over various other image formats ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file format works well if you need to make really amazing and spectacular images that will entice your visitors

The PNG file type was introduced a few years back; it was brought out in the market in 1995/96 to cover the drawbacks of the traditional GIF file type. However, it did not catch on because the the browsers of the time were unable to support the state of the art offerings of PNG so website designers and makers had to use it sparingly. One of the major blocks that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of the time; IE had little or no space for PNG support consequently the format could only be incorporated in limited capacity. However, things went through a change after the availability of IE7; this latest browser from Microsoft has helped in increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the most innovative image formats around today:

You will be able to create transparent images or a feature called alpha transparency: When you compare PNG with GIF, you will see that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you will only be able to save a particular color as transparent in GIF this simply means that the color can be used regardless of it being opaque or transparent with no other color in between; however, with PNG, you get a serious feature over GIF; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. This feature gives you the ability to save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. The Image can also be used as a background with gradient or a water mark. The image file type allows for the gradual fading of colors from fully opaque to transparent, exposing the webpage below

They look spectacular: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are several other advantages to using this format. For example, when you use a JPEG image, you lose some of the data on the original file each time you save the file, so eventually, you will be able to see a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the pictures. Although, this problem has been solved in the image format and you can save the pictures without compromising any details, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which imparts it quite futile if you have to store a picture. But, if PNG is incorporated, you will get the most desired benefits of the image formats; you will have access to a full color display similar to JPEG file type and it also supports managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Another advantage is that the storage of the image is without loss so the image stays put despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG is self optimizing: One of the hurdles that web programmers face frequently is the issue where the contrast and brightness of the commuter screen has to be changed to see the the display correctly; this happens due to the difference in the Gamma setting used for the different monitors. Gamma is a method used to scatter the the light across the screen. However, different operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. Hence, a picture that is color corrected specifically for Windows may not look right on a Mac. Once again, in this scenario the flexible PNG picture format can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the files 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 brightness and contrast.
