Why Do You Need to Use PNG Images in Your Website Designs?

The benefits of including PNG image format in web designing over the different formats like GIF and JPEG; the file format works well if you need to make bettergood and spectacular images that will wow your customers.

The PNG file type was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out in the marketlfor consumers in 1995/96 to meet the deficiencies of the popular GIF imageformat. However, it did not catch on because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the advanced offerings of PNG so website designers and developers were compelled include it in their designs stingily. One of the primary hindrances faced by PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of the time; IE had little or no place for PNG support which meant that the format could only be incorporated in limited capacity. But changed when IE7 was brought out; this latestfresh product from Microsoft has aided in increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the the most useful image formats around today:

Youcan get images that can be superimposed due to their transarentcy or a feature called alpha transparency: When you compare PNG with GIF, it will become apparent that A defnitve difference in the two formats is that you can only save a particular color as transparent in GIF this simply means that you can get the color whether opaque or transparent with nothing in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get adistinct benefit; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. This feature gives you the ability to save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. The Image can also be used as a gradient background or water mark. The image file type gives you the option to use the smooth fading ofcolors from completely opaque to absolutely transparent, and hence you will be able to view the webpage below

They lookspectacular: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images ; there are several a myriad of other benefit to incorporating this format. For example, if you choose a JPG image, you lose some of the information from the initial image whenever the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to view a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the pictures. Although, this problem has now been sortedbeen resolved in GIF and it is possible to store the pictures without sacrificing any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite useless if you want to store a photograph. However, when you use PNG, you will get the most desired attributes of the two file types; you will be provded a a full color display like the one used in 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}.
