Besides the name I have chosen in this article we will try to answer not one but two questions about the new image format on the web. Why to use png? and What makes png better than the other formats?. No this is not the same question with just few words changed and you will see the difference by reading to the bottom of this article.
Before we start I will give some historical background. I said above that the format is now however it was established back in 1995. The key word here ts that png is newer than all teh rest known formats as jpeg, gif, tiff and so on. The motivation for creating the PNG format was that the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) data compression algorithm, used in the GIF format, had been patented by Unisys. There were also other problems with the GIF format which made a replacement desirable, notably its limitation to 256 colors at a time when computers capable of displaying far more than 256 colors were becoming common. Official website of PNG format is http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/
Why to use png?
a) First, something can be said in favour of freely usable file formats for popular applications. Such formats are for instance JPEG, HTML and RTF. One such format for so called line art is PNG. Initiatives as the PNG one should be encouraged by the end user (the information provider on the Internet).
b) Second, PNG offers better compression than GIF. Typically pictures are two-third the size of their GIF counterparts. A careful estimation shows that the use of bandwidth on the Internet can be reduced by a noticeable amount if everybody would use PNG instead of GIF
What makes png better than the other formats?
a) The PNG format has more to offer. For instance, it can be used for 24 bit pictures.
b) The data structure is a bit more logical and intuitive to understand.
c) You can use a text viewer to get some information from a PNG file. Author name and description are saved as plain text.
d) There is no loss of graphic image data when an image is uncompressed.
e) The .png format supports variable transparency of images (alpha channels) and control of image brightness on different computers (gamma correction) Read the rest of this entry »
