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

The advantages of incorporating PNG file format in website creation over other image formats ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file format works well if you need to make really amazing and efficient web graphics that will wow your customers

The PNG file format was introduced some time ago; it was brought out for consumers in the mid 90's to cover the drawbacks of the popular GIF file type. However, it did not make an impression because the then browsers were unable to support the progressive offerings of PNG so internet designers and developers were forced to incorporate it restrictedly. One of the major hurdles standing in the way was Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of that period; IE had very little provision for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be used in limited capacity. However, things went through a change when IE7 was brought out; this new offering from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the usability of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the most useful image formats in the market today:

You can get images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, will notice that one of the major differences is that you you will be restricted to saving any odd color as transparent in GIF this equates to the fact that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with just transparency in between; however, with PNG, you get a serious feature over GIF; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. This feature gives you the ability to save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. The Image can also be used as a gradient background or water mark. The image file type allows for the smooth fading of hues from entirely opaque to transparent, exposing the webpage below

They look spectacular: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are numerous other benefits to using this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose some of the data from the initial image every time the file is saved, so after a while, you will notice a noticeable downgrade in the appearance of the images. Even though, this issue has been solved in the image format and you can save the files without compromising any data, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which imparts it quite ineffective if you have to store a picture. But, with PNG, you will get the best features of the two file types; you will have access to an extensive color display like with JPEG images and it also supports managed color palette as seen in GIF files. At the same time the storage of the file is without loss so the photograph stays as it is even if you save the file several times.

PNG is self optimizing: One of the hurdles that web designers face frequently is the fact that the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be regulated to see the the display properly; this problem occurs due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma setting is a technology used to distribute the luminance across the monitor display. However, diverse operating systems use distinct Gamma settings. Hence, a picture that is color corrected for Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Again, in this situation the versatile PNG format comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can save the images with a built in Gamma correction so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to show a picture with the amazing contrast and brightness.
