Why Is it In Your Best Interest To Use PNG Images in Your Website Creation?

The advantages of including PNG file format in web designing over various other image formats ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make really amazing and efficient web graphics that will prove alluring to your customers

The PNG file type was introduced some time ago; it was brought out in the market around 95/96 to meet the deficiencies of the traditional GIF file type. However, it failed to create ripples because the then browsers were unable to support the progressive attributes of PNG so web designers and creators were compelled to incorporate it stingily. One of the main hurdles faced by the format was 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. However, the scene changed with the introduction of IE7; this latest product from Microsoft has aided in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is one of the most useful image formats in the market today:

You will be able to create see through images or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that A definitive difference in the two formats is that you can only save a specific color transparently through the use of GIF this simply means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with no other color in between with the use of PNG, you get a specific advantage; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. With this attribute, you can save a PNG file with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. You can also use the image as a gradient background or water mark. The file type lets you incorporate the slow fading of shades from fully opaque to transparent, so that you can see the webpage below

They look spectacular: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are a myriad of other benefits to incorporating this format. For instance, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose a part of the information from the initial image each time you save the file, so eventually, you will notice a noticeable downgrade in the finesse of the images. Even if, this issue has been resolved in the image format and you will be able to store the files without sacrificing any details, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which imparts it quite useless if you want to store a picture. However, when you use PNG, you will get the perfect benefits of the two file types; you will be provided a complete color display like the one used in JPEG images and it also supports managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Another advantage is that the compression of the picture is sans loss so the image stays as it is regardless of how many time you save it.

Self Optimization is possible in PNG: A serious problem that web programmers 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 appropriately; the issue comes into the picture due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma setting is a technique incorporated to distribute the luminance across the display surface. However, various operating systems use distinct Gamma settings. Hence, a picture that is color corrected to suit Windows may not look right on a Mac. Once again, in this case the flexible PNG picture format can prove useful, in PNG, you can save the files with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to display a picture with the amazing ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
