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

The pros of using PNG image format in web designing over various other file types such as GIF and JPEG; the file type works well if you need to make really amazing and efficient web graphics that will prove alluring to your consumers

The PNG image format was introduced a few years back; it was put forth in the market in 1995/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional GIF file type. 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 incorporate it restrictedly. One of the primary hurdles that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of that period; IE had very little space for PNG support consequently the format could only be made use of in the most restricted way. However, the scene went through a change after the availability of IE7; this latest product from Microsoft has helped in increasing the usability of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats around today:

It is possible to create images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a property known as alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, will notice that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you will only be able to save a specific color transparently through the use of GIF this equates to the fact that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in between with the use of PNG, you get a distinct advantage; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. With this attribute, 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 image file type allows for the smooth fading of shades from completely opaque to transparent, exposing the webpage underneath

They look spectacular: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also; there are numerous other benefits to incorporating this format. For instance, when you use a JPEG image, you lose a portion of the details from the original file whenever you save the file, so after a while, you will be able to view a noticeable deterioration in the finesse of the images. Even if, this problem has been resolved in the image format and you will be able to save the files without compromising any data, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which imparts it quite futile if you are going to store a photograph. On the other hand, when you use PNG, you will get the perfect features of the image formats; you will have access to a full color display similar to JPEG format and it also provides managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Another advantage is that the compression of the picture is lossless so the image stays as it is regardless of how many time you save it.

PNG allows for self optimization: A serious problem that web programmers need to handle frequently is the fact that the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be regulated to see the pictures properly; this happens due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma setting is a technology that helps to distribute the luminance across the screen. However, diverse operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. So, an image that is color corrected specifically for Windows may not look right on a Mac. Here again, in this case the innovative PNG picture format can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the files with an inherent Gamma correction feature so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to display a file with the perfect brightness and contrast.
