Why Should You Use PNG Images in Your Website Creation?

The pros of including PNG image format in website creation over other file types like GIF and JPEG; the image format works well if you need to make really amazing and wonderful icons that will wow your customers

The PNG image format was introduced quite a while back; it was brought out in the market in the mid 90's to cover the drawbacks of the traditional GIF image format. However, it failed to create ripples because the the browsers of the time were not designed to support the state of the art offerings of PNG so website designers and creators were compelled to use it sparingly. One of the primary blocks that marred the features of PNG was with Microsoft's flagship product, Internet Explorer which was by far the most famous browsers of the time; IE had very little provision for PNG support consequently the format could only be incorporated in the most restricted way. However, things changed with the introduction of IE7; this fresh product from Microsoft has proved immensely useful in increasing increasing the utility of PNGs. So here is a look at three reasons why PNG is one of the most useful image formats to be introduced so far:

It is possible to create see through images or alpha transparency: When you pitch GIF against PNG, you will see that one of the major differences is that you you will be restricted to saving a particular color in a transparent format through GIF this simply means that you can get the color whether opaque or transparent with nothing in between; however, with PNG, you get a distinct feature over GIF; because the format supports semi transparent pixels. This feature gives you the ability to 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 watermark or a gradient background. The file type lets you incorporate the gradual fading of hues from fully opaque to transparent, and hence you will be able to view the webpage underneath

They look spectacular: Apart from the fact, that you get amazing flexibility wit PNG images; there are numerous other advantages to using this format. For example, when you use a JPEG image, you lose some of the information from the original file every time the file is saved, so in time, you will notice a conspicuous downgrade in the appearance of the media. Even if, this concern has been solved in GIF and you can store the images without losing any data, GIF has a limited color palette of 256, which imparts it quite futile if you are going to store a photograph. However, when you use PNG, you can get the perfect features of the image formats; you get a full color display like the one used in JPEG format and it also provides managed color palette as seen in GIF files. Also the compression of the picture is without loss so the picture stays as it is even if you save the file several times.

PNG is self optimizing: A serious problem that web programmers face frequently is the fact that the brightness and the contrast ratio of the screen has to be changed to see the images correctly; this happens due to the Gamma settings of different monitors. Gamma setting is a technology incorporated to scatter the luminance across the display surface. However, different operating systems use a variety of Gamma settings. Hence, multimedia that is color corrected specifically for Windows may appear abnormal in Mac. Here again, in this scenario the versatile PNG image type can help you out, in PNG, you can store the images with with a Gamma correction feature that is innate so despite the differences in operating systems; the Gamma settings will be changed on its own to display an image with the amazing brightness and contrast.
