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

The advantages of including PNG file format in web designing over other image formats such as GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make really amazing and spectacular images that will entice your visitors

The PNG file format was introduced some time ago; it was brought out in the market in 1995/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the popular GIF image format. However, it did not make an impression because the then browsers were not designed to support the advanced offerings of PNG so web designers and makers were compelled to include it in their designs stingily. One of the primary blocks that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of the time; IE had limited place for PNG support which meant that the format could only be incorporated in limited capacity. Then, the scene changed after the availability of IE7; this new product from Microsoft has aided in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the most innovative image formats to be introduced so far:

You will be able to create transparent images or alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, it will become apparent that A definitive difference in the two formats is that you you will be restricted to saving a particular color in a transparent format through GIF which means that you can get the color whether opaque or transparent with no other color in between; however, with PNG, you get a serious advantage; 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 fuse it with a background that suits your taste. The Image can also be used as a gradient background or water mark. The format allows for the gradual fading of colors from completely opaque to transparent, exposing the webpage below

They look fabulous: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are numerous other benefits to including this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a part of the data on the original file whenever the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to see a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the pictures. Although, this concern has now been sorted in in the file type and it is possible to save the images without compromising any information, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which imparts it quite futile if you are going to store a photograph. However, when you use PNG, you can get the most desired features of the two file types; you will have access to an extensive color display similar to JPEG format and it also offers managed color palette a la GIF files. At the same time the storage of the image is without loss so the image does not change despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG allows for self optimization: One of the hurdles that web designers face on a daily basis is the issue where the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be changed to see the the display correctly; the issue comes into the picture due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma is a technology that helps to scatter the brightness across the monitor display. However, different operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. Therefore, multimedia that is color corrected for Windows will seem wrong when seen on Mac. Here again, in this situation the versatile PNG picture format can prove useful, in PNG, you can save the pictures with a built in Gamma correction so despite the differences in operating systems; the Gamma settings will be realigned to display a picture with the amazing brightness and contrast.
