Why Do You Need to Use PNG Images in Your Website Creation?

The pros of using PNG images in website designing over the different image formats like GIF and JPEG; the file format can be used to make good and efficient web graphics that will wow your customers

The PNG file type was introduced a few years back; it was brought out for consumers in the mid 90's to make up for the shortcomings of the popular GIF file format. However, it did not make an impression because the early browsers could not offer support to the advanced features of PNG so website designers and makers were compelled to incorporate it restrictedly. One of the main hindrances that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of that period; IE had little or no space for PNG support which meant that the format could only be incorporated in limited capacity. However, the scene metamorphosed when IE7 was brought out; this fresh browser from Microsoft has helped in increasing the usability of PNGs. So lets take a look at three reasons why PNG is by far the most useful image formats in the market today:

You will be able to create images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, it will become apparent that A definitive difference in the two formats is that you you will be restricted to saving any odd color as transparent in GIF this simply means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with just transparency in between; however, with PNG, you get a distinct advantage; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. This simply means that you can save a PNG file with a soft drop shadow and then float it against any background. You can also use the image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The file type lets you incorporate the slow fading of shades from entirely opaque to transparent, so that you can see the webpage below

They look fabulous: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are numerous other advantages to using this format. For instance, if you choose a JPG image, you lose a part of the information on the original file whenever you save the file, so after a while, you will notice a noticeable downgrade in the quality of the images. Even though, this problem has now been sorted in in the file type and it is possible to store the pictures without compromising any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite ineffective if you want to save a photograph. On the other hand, when you use PNG, you will get the best benefits of the image formats; you will be provided an extensive color display similar to JPEG format and it also offers managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Also the compression of the picture is lossless so the photograph stays as it is despite innumerable times of saving the file.

Self Optimization is possible in PNG: A major concern that web designers have to tackle on a daily basis is the issue where the contrast and brightness of the commuter screen has to be regulated to see the the display appropriately; the issue comes into the picture due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma is a technology used to scatter the brightness across the monitor display. However, different operating systems use varying Gamma settings. Hence, a picture that is color corrected to suit Windows will seem wrong when seen on Mac. Again, in this case the flexible PNG picture format comes to the rescue, in PNG, you can store the images with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be automatically adjusted to show a file with the perfect ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
