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

The benefits of incorporating PNG image format in website designing over the different formats such as GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make better and wonderful icons that will prove alluring to your customers

The PNG file format was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out in the market in 1995/96 to meet the deficiencies of the popular GIF file type. However, it did not make an impression because the early browsers could not offer support to the state of the art offerings of PNG so website designers and makers were compelled to incorporate it stingily. One of the primary hurdles that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of the time; IE had little or no space for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be made use of in limited capacity. But, the scene went through a change when IE7 was brought out; this fresh product from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the usability of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is one of the best image formats around today:

You will be able to create transparent images or alpha transparency: When you analyze the features of GIF and PNG, it will become apparent that A definitive difference in the two formats is that you can only save a particular color transparently through the use of GIF which means that the color can be used regardless of it being opaque or transparent with just transparency in betweenbut when you use PNG, you get a specific benefit; because the format is capable of producing semi transparent pixels. With this attribute, you can save a PNG image 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 format allows for the smooth fading of shades from entirely opaque to absolutely 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 several other advantages to using this format. For example, when you use a JPEG image, you lose a part of the information on the original file whenever the file is saved, so eventually, you will be able to view a distinct decline in the finesse of the images. Although, this concern has been resolved in the image format and you will be able to store the files without compromising any details, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which makes it quite ineffective if you have to store a snap shot. On the other hand, when you use PNG, you could get the perfect features of the two file types; you get a full color display like the one used in JPEG images and it also offers managed color palette a la GIF files. At the same time the storage of the file is lossless so the picture stays put even if you save the file several times.

PNG allows for self optimization: A major concern that web programmers face very often is the anomaly due to which the contrast and brightness of the commuter screen has to be regulated to see the images properly; this happens due to various Gamma setting used in monitors from different vendors. Gamma setting is a technology incorporated to distribute the luminance across the display surface. However, various operating systems use varying Gamma settings. So, a picture that is color corrected to suit Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Again, in this case the innovative PNG format can prove useful, in PNG, you can save the pictures with a built in Gamma correction so whatever operating system you are working on; the Gamma settings will be realigned to show an image with the impressive ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
