Why Is it In Your Best Interest To Use PNG Image Format in Your Web Design?

The benefits of including PNG image format in website designing over other image formats like GIF and JPEG; the image format can be use to make really amazing and wonderful icons that will wow your visitors.

The PNG image format was introduced a few years back; it was put forth in the marketlfor consumers in 1995/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional GIF file type. However, it did not make an impression because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the progrresiveLstate of the art features of PNG so web designers and developers had to use it sparingly. One of the main hindrances standing in the way of PNG was with Microsoft Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of that period; IE had very little provision for PNG support consequently the format could only be used in the most restricted way. matters changed after the availability of IE7; this new offeringbrowser from Microsoft has aided in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the the most useful image formats in the market today:

Youcan get see through images or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that a very disinct advantage with PNG is that you you will be restricted to saving any odd color in a transparent format through GIF this simply means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with nothing in between with the use of PNG, you get adistinct advantage; because the format can be used to roduce semi tranparency. With this attaribute, you can 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 background with gradient or a water mark. The file type lets you incorporate the slow fading ofhues from completely opaque to se through, exposing the webpage underneath

They lookspectacular: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also ; there are numreous other benefit to using this format. For instance, if you choose a JPG image, you lose some of the information on the original file whenever the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to see a conspicuous deterioration in the quality of the pictures. Even though, this concern has now been sortedbeen resolved in the image format and it is possible to store the pictures without sacrificing any information, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite useless if you want to store a snap shot. But, with PNG, you could get the best benefits of of the image formats; you get a an extensive color display like with JPEG file type 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}.
