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

The benefits of using PNG image format in web designing over various other formats such as GIF and JPEG; the file type works well if you need to make bettergood and wonderful icons that will entice your customers.

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was put forth in the marketlfor consumers around 95/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional GIF file format. However, it did not catch on because the then browsers were unable to support the advanced attributes of PNG so internet designers and creators were compelled include it in their designs stingily. One of the main hurdles standing in the way of PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous 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. the scene metamorphosed when IE7 was brought out; this latestfresh offeringbrowser from Microsoft has helped in increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is 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 analyze the features of GIF and PNG, you will see that a very disinct advantage with PNG is that you will only be able to save a particular color transparently through the use of GIF which means that you can get the color whether opaque or transparent with nothing in between; however, with PNG, you get adistinct benefit; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. With this attaribute, you can save a PNG file 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 allows for the glardual fading ofshades from completely opaque to transparent, so that you can see 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 incorporating this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose some of the details from the initial image whenever the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to see a noticeable deterioration in the quality of the pictures. Even if, this concern has been solved in GIF and you can save the files without compromising any details, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which rendersimpart it quite ineffective if you have to store a photograph. However, if PNG is incorporated, you can get the perfect features of both these formats; you get a a full color display similar to 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}.
