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

The advantages of including PNG images in website designing over the different formats such as GIF and JPEG; the file format can be used to make really amazing and spectacular images that will wow your customers

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was put forth in the market in the mid 90's to meet the deficiencies of the popular GIF image format. However, it did not make an impression because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the progressive features of PNG so website designers and creators were forced to use it stingily. One of the primary blocks that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was the most well known and widely used browsers of the time; IE had very little space for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be incorporated to a bare minimum. But, things went through a change after the availability of IE7; this new product from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the popularity of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats to be introduced so far:

You can get see through images or a property known as alpha transparency: When you compare PNG with GIF, it will become apparent that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you will only be able to save a specific color transparently through the use of GIF this simply means that the color can be transformed whether opaque or transparent with no other color in between; however, with PNG, you get a distinct advantage; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. This simply means that you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. You can also use the image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The image file type gives you the option to use the smooth fading of colors from completely opaque to transparent, and hence you will be able to view the webpage underneath

They look spectacular: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are a myriad of other advantages to using this format. For instance, when you use a JPEG image, you lose a part of the data from the initial image every time the file is saved, so eventually, you will notice a noticeable downgrade in the quality of the media. Even if, this concern has now been sorted in in the file type and it is possible to save the files without losing any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite futile if you want to save a picture. However, if PNG is incorporated, you can get the best benefits of the two file types; you will be provided a full color display like with JPEG format and it also supports managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Also the compression of the image is sans loss so the picture stays put despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG allows for self optimization: A serious problem that web designers face very often is the fact that the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be changed to see the the display properly; this happens due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma setting is a technology used to spread the brightness across the monitor display. However, diverse operating systems use distinct Gamma settings. So, multimedia that is color corrected specifically for Windows may not look right on a Mac. Here again, in this case the innovative PNG image type comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can store the files with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so despite the differences in operating systems; the Gamma settings will be realigned to show a picture with the perfect ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
