Why Do You Need to Use PNG File Format in Your Web Design?

The benefits of using PNG file format in web designing over other image formats like GIF and JPEG; the file format works well if you need to make bettergood and efficient web graphics that will prove alluring to your visitors.

The PNG file format was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out in the marketlfor consumers around 95/96 to meet the deficiencies of the the common GIF file format. However, it failed to create ripples because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the advanced attributes of PNG so internet designers and creators were compelled to incorporate it restrictedly. One of the major hurdles faced by PNG was with Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of that period; IE had little or no provision for PNG support which meant that the format could only be used to a bare minimum. matters went through a change after the availability of IE7; this new offeringbrowser from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is one of the the most useful image formats to be introduced so far:

You will be able to create see through images or a feature called alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, it will become apparent 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 equates to the fact that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with nothing in between with the use of PNG, you get adistinct feature over GIF; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. With this attaribute, you can save a PNG image with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. Through this feature you will be able to use an image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The image file type gives you the option to use the glardual fading ofshades from completely opaque to absolutely transparent, exposing the webpage that lies in the background

They lookfabulous: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also ; there are several a myriad of other advantages to using this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a portion of the data on the original file every time you save the file, so after a while, you will be able to see a conspicuous deterioration in the quality of the pictures. Even though, this problem has been solved in the image format and it is possible to save the images without losing any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite ineffective if you want to store a picture. But, when you use PNG, you could get the perfect benefits of the two file types; you will have access to a a complete color display like with JPEG format 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}.
