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

The advantages of including PNG image format in web designing over various other formats ;for instance, GIF and JPEG; the image format can be used to make better and spectacular images that will entice your customers

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out for consumers in the mid 90's to cover the drawbacks of the traditional GIF file format. However, it failed to create ripples because the then browsers were unable to support the progressive attributes of PNG so internet designers and creators had to incorporate it restrictedly. One of the main hurdles faced by the format was Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was one of the most popular browsers of that period; IE had limited space for PNG support which equated to the fact that the format could only be used to a bare minimum. But, things changed with the introduction of IE7; this fresh offering from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the utility of PNGs. So here is why at three reasons why PNG is one of 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 alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, will notice that A definitive difference in the two formats is that you you will be restricted to saving a specific color transparently through the use of GIF which means that the color can be used whether opaque or transparent with no other color in between; however, with PNG, you get a distinct benefit; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. With this attribute, you can save a PNG picture with a soft drop shadow and then fuse it with a background that suits your taste. The Image can also be used as a background with gradient or a water mark. The file type allows for the slow fading of hues from completely opaque to see through, so that you can see the webpage below

They look fabulous: It is a well known fact that PNG images give you extreme flexibility also; there are several other benefits to incorporating this format. For example, if you make use of the JPG Format, you lose some of the details from the initial image each time the file is saved, so in time, you will be able to see a distinct deterioration in the appearance of the media. Even though, this issue has been resolved in in the file type and you can save the pictures without compromising any details, GIF only allows for a limited 256 color palette, which imparts it quite useless if you have to store a picture. On the other hand, if PNG is incorporated, you will get the most desired benefits of both these formats; you will be provided a full color display like with JPEG file type and it also supports managed color palette a la GIF files. Another advantage is that the compression of the file is without loss so the photograph stays as it is even if you save the file several times.

PNG is self optimizing: A serious problem that web designers have to tackle frequently is the anomaly due to which 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 is a technique incorporated to spread the brightness across the monitor display. However, various operating systems use varying Gamma settings. Therefore, a picture that is color corrected to suit Windows may not look right on a Mac. Again, in this scenario the flexible PNG picture format can help you out, in PNG, you can store the files with a built in Gamma correction so regardless of the operating system; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to display a picture with the amazing ratios of contrast as well as brightness.
