Why Should You Use PNG Image Format in Your Web Design?

The benefits of using PNG image format in website designing over other image formats like GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make good and wonderful icons that will entice your visitors

The PNG file format was introduced quite a while back; it was put forth for consumers in the mid 90's to meet the deficiencies of the popular GIF file format. However, it did not make an impression because the then browsers could not offer support to the state of the art attributes of PNG so internet designers and creators were forced to incorporate it sparingly. One of the primary blocks standing in the way was Microsoft's Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of that period; IE had little or no place for PNG support consequently the format could only be made use of in the most restricted way. Then, matters metamorphosed with the introduction of IE7; this latest browser from Microsoft has aided in increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats around today:

It is possible to create images that can be superimposed due to their transparency or a feature called alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, will notice that a very distinct advantage with PNG is that you you will be restricted to saving a specific color in a transparent format through GIF this equates to the fact that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in between; however, with PNG, you get a serious feature over GIF; 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. Through this feature you will be able to use an image as a gradient background or water mark. The file type allows for the gradual fading of shades from fully opaque to see through, exposing the webpage below

They look fabulous: Not only do you get surprising flexibility when using PNG images but also; there are a myriad of other benefits to using this format. For instance, when you use a JPEG image, you lose some of the details from the original file whenever you save the file, so eventually, you will be able to see a noticeable deterioration in the appearance of the media. Even if, this issue has been solved in GIF and you will be able to save the images without compromising any information, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which renders it quite futile if you want to save a picture. On the other hand, with PNG, you can get the best features of the image formats; you will be provided an extensive color display like the one used in JPEG images and it also supports managed color palette like GIF files. Also the compression of the image is without loss so the photograph stays put despite innumerable times of saving the file.

PNG is self optimizing: One of the hurdles that web designers face on a daily basis 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 is a method that helps to distribute the luminance across the monitor display. However, different operating systems use varying Gamma settings. So, a picture that is color corrected for Windows will seem wrong when seen on Mac. Once again, in this case the versatile PNG picture format can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the files with an inherent Gamma correction feature so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be realigned to display an image with the impressive brightness and contrast.
