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

The advanatges of using PNG file format in website creation over various other file types such as GIF and JPEG; the file type can be use to make bettergood and spectacular images that will prove alluring to your consumers.

The PNG file type was introduced a few years back; it was put forth in the marketlfor consumers around 95/96 to meet the deficiencies of the traditional GIF imageformat. However, it did not catch on because the early browsers were unable to support the progrresiveLstate of the art features of PNG so website designers and makers were forced to include it in their designs stingily. One of the major blocks standing in the way of PNG was with Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used 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. the scene metamorphosed when IE7 was brought out; this new product from Microsoft has aided in increasing the utility of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is one of the the most innovative image formats around today:

It is possible to create see through images or alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that one of the major differences is that you will only be able to save any odd color as transparent in GIF this equates to the fact that the color can be used regardless of it being opaque or transparent with nothing in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get adistinct feature over GIF; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. This feature gives you the ability to save a PNG image with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. You can also use the image as a watermark or a gradient background. The image file type lets you incorporate the slow fading ofhues from completely opaque to se through, and hence you will be able to view the webpage that lies in the background

They lookfabulous: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images ; there are numreous other benefit to including this format. For example, when you use a JPEG image, you lose a portion of the details from the original file every time the file is saved, so eventually, you will notice a conspicuous downgrade in the quality of the media. Even if, this issue has now been sortedbeen resolved in in the file type and it is possible to store the files without losing any information, GIF has a highly restrictive 256 color palette, which rendersimpart it quite useless if you want to store a snap shot. However, with PNG, you could get the perfect features of of the image formats; you get a a full color display like with JPEG images 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}.
