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

The benefits of including PNG image format in website creation over the different image formats such as GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make good and efficient web graphics that will entice your visitors

The PNG file format was introduced a few years back; it was put forth in the market in 1995/96 to meet the deficiencies of the the common GIF image format. However, it did not make an impression because the the browsers of the time were unable to support the progressive features of PNG so website designers and developers had to use it restrictedly. One of the primary hindrances standing in the way was Microsoft Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of the time; IE had little or no provision for PNG support consequently the format could only be incorporated in the most restricted way. But, the scene went through a change after the availability of IE7; this latest product from Microsoft has helped in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats in the market today:

You can get images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a feature called alpha transparency: When you compare PNG with GIF, you will see that one of the major differences is that you will only be able to save a specific color transparently through the use of GIF this simply means that the color can be transformed whether opaque or transparent with just transparency in between with the use of PNG, you get a distinct benefit; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. This simply means that you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. You can also use the image as a watermark or a gradient background. The file type gives you the option to use the smooth fading of shades from completely opaque to absolutely transparent, and hence you will be able to view the webpage that lies in the background

They look fabulous: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are several other advantages to incorporating this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a portion of the information on the original file whenever the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to see a noticeable deterioration in the quality of the media. Even if, this issue has now been sorted in the image format and you will be able to store the pictures without sacrificing any data, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which renders it quite ineffective if you have to store a photograph. But, if PNG is incorporated, you will get the most desired attributes of the two file types; you get an extensive color display like the one used in JPEG file type and it also provides managed color palette a la GIF files. Another advantage is that the storage of the file is lossless so the photograph stays put even if you save the file several times.

Self Optimization is possible in PNG: A major concern that web designers need to handle very often is the anomaly due to which the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be regulated to see the images properly; this happens due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma is a method that helps to scatter the brightness across the screen. However, diverse operating systems use varying Gamma settings. So, an image that is color corrected to suit Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Here again, in this situation the versatile PNG format can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the pictures with an inherent Gamma correction feature so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to display a picture with the amazing brightness and contrast.
