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

The pros of incorporating PNG images in website designing over various other file types like GIF and JPEG; the file type can be use to make bettergood and efficient web graphics that will entice your consumers.

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out in the marketlfor consumers in the mid 90's to make up for the shortcomings of the the common GIF file format. However, it did not catch on because the the browsers of the time could not offer support to the advanced attributes of PNG so website designers and developers were forced to to use it restrictedly. One of the main hindrances faced by PNG was with Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of that period; IE had limited space for PNG support consequently the format could only be used to a bare minimum. the scene went through a change when IE7 was brought out; this new offeringbrowser from Microsoft has helped in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is by far the best image formats around today:

Youcan get images that can be superimposed due to their transarentcy or a feature called alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, it will become apparent that one of the major differences is that you will only be able to save any odd color as transparent in GIF which means that the color can be transformed regardless of it being opaque or transparent with nothing in between with the use of PNG, you get apecific benefit; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. This simply means that you can save a PNG image with a soft drop shadow and then use it against a background of your choice. Through this feature you will be able to use an image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The format allows for the smooth fading ofhues from completely opaque to absolutely transparent, and hence you will be able to view the webpage below

They lookspectacular: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also ; there are numreous other advantages to including this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a part of the information from the initial image whenever you save the file, so in time, you will notice a conspicuous deterioration in the finesse of the media. Even though, this concern has been solved in the image format and it is possible to save the images without compromising any data, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite ineffective if you want 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 images 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}.
