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

The benefits of using PNG image format in website creation over other file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file type can be used to make good and efficient web graphics that will prove alluring to your customers

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was put forth for consumers around 95/96 to cover the drawbacks of the the common GIF image format. However, it did not make an impression because the the browsers of the time could not offer support to the state of the art attributes of PNG so website designers and developers were forced to use it stingily. One of the major blocks standing in the way was Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of the time; IE had limited provision for PNG support which meant that the format could only be made use of in limited capacity. But, the scene went through a change with the introduction of IE7; this fresh product from Microsoft has helped in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is one of the most innovative image formats to be introduced so far:

You can get images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, it will become apparent that one of the major differences is that you will only be able to save a particular color as transparent in 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 feature over GIF; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. This simply means that you can save a PNG file with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. The Image can also be used as a watermark or a gradient background. The file type allows for the gradual fading of hues from entirely opaque to absolutely transparent, so that you can see the webpage below

They look fantastic: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are several other advantages to using this format. For instance, if you choose a JPG image, you lose some of the data from the original file every time you save the file, so eventually, you will be able to view a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the images. Even though, this problem has been solved in the image format and you can store the files without losing any details, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which renders it quite ineffective if you are going to save a snap shot. On the other hand, when you use PNG, you could get the most desired benefits of the two file types; you will be provided a full color display similar to JPEG file type and it also provides managed color palette as seen in GIF files. At the same time the storage of the image is lossless so the picture stays as it is regardless of how many time you save it.

Self Optimization is possible in PNG: A major concern that web programmers have to tackle frequently is the fact that the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be changed to see the images appropriately; the issue comes into the picture due to the difference in the Gamma setting used for the different monitors. Gamma is a technology that helps to distribute the luminance across the screen. However, different operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. So, multimedia that is color corrected specifically for Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Once again, in this situation the versatile PNG picture format comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can store the images with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to show a picture with the perfect contrast and brightness.
