Why Do You Need to Use PNG File Format in Your Website Creation?

The benefits of using PNG image format in web designing over other file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the image format helps to make really amazing and spectacular images that will prove alluring to your visitors

The PNG file type was introduced a few years back; it was brought out for consumers in 1995/96 to cover the drawbacks of the traditional GIF file type. However, it did not make an impression because the the browsers of the time were unable to support the state of the art features of PNG so website designers and makers were compelled to include it in their designs sparingly. One of the primary hindrances standing in the way was Microsoft Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of the time; IE had little or no place for PNG support which meant that the format could only be incorporated to a bare minimum. However, matters metamorphosed after the availability of IE7; this fresh browser from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the popularity of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is by far the most innovative image formats around today:

You can get see through images or a property known as alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that one of the major differences is that you you will be restricted to saving any odd color as transparent in GIF this simply means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with nothing in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get a specific advantage; 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. Through this feature you will be able to use an image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The format lets you incorporate the gradual fading of colors from entirely opaque to see through, exposing the webpage underneath

They look fantastic: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are several other advantages to including this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose some of the information from the original file each time you save the file, so after a while, you will notice a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the images. Even if, this issue has been solved in in the file type and you will be able to save the files without compromising any information, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite futile if you want to save a picture. However, if PNG is incorporated, you can get the perfect benefits of the image formats; you will have access to a full color display like the one used in JPEG images and it also provides managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Also the compression of the file is sans loss so the picture stays put despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG allows for self optimization: A serious problem that web designers have to tackle on a daily basis is the anomaly due to which the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be regulated to see the images correctly; the issue comes into the picture due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma setting is a technique that helps to scatter the luminance across the screen. However, various operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. Therefore, an image that is color corrected specifically for Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Here again, in this scenario the versatile PNG image type comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can store the pictures with a built in Gamma correction so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to show a picture with the perfect contrast and brightness.
