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

The advantages of including PNG image format in website creation over other file types ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the file format can be used to make good and wonderful icons that will entice your customers

The PNG file type was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out for consumers around 95/96 to make up for the shortcomings of the traditional GIF file type. However, it failed to create ripples because the the browsers of the time were unable to support the progressive attributes of PNG so website designers and makers were forced to include it in their designs stingily. One of the main hurdles standing in the way was Microsoft Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of the time; IE had little or no space for PNG support consequently the format could only be used to a bare minimum. However, matters changed after the availability of IE7; this fresh product from Microsoft has aided in increasing the popularity of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is is often regarded as the best image formats to be introduced so far:

You will be able to create transparent 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 will only be able to save any odd color as transparent in GIF this equates to the fact that you can get the color regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get a serious feature over GIF; because the format can be used to produce semi transparency. With this attribute, you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then use it against a background of your choice. Through this feature you will be able to use an image as a background with gradient or a water mark. The file type allows for the smooth fading of colors from fully opaque to see through, exposing the webpage that lies in the background

They look fabulous: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are numerous other advantages to using this format. For example, when you use a JPEG image, you lose some of the data from the original file each time you save the file, so after a while, you will be able to see a conspicuous deterioration in the appearance of the media. Even if, this problem has been solved in the image format and you can save the pictures without sacrificing any details, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which imparts it quite ineffective if you have to store a picture. But, if PNG is incorporated, you can get the perfect features of both these formats; you will have access to a complete color display similar to JPEG file type and it also supports managed color palette a la GIF files. Another advantage is that the storage of the file is without loss so the photograph stays as it is despite innumerable times of saving the file.

Self Optimization is possible in PNG: One of the hurdles that web programmers have to tackle very often is the issue where the contrast and the brightness of the monitor has to be adjusted to see the pictures correctly; this happens due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma is a technology used to spread the the light across the screen. However, diverse 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 situation the versatile PNG image type can prove useful, in PNG, you can store the pictures with a built in Gamma correction so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to show an image with the perfect ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
