Description The Sony Alpha RAW image format is used by Sony digital cameras to store images, and captures the raw, uncompressed data for images as captured by the camera's sensors. Sony entered the photo market with its first camera in 1981. It continued to develop various models (on average one new camera model each year) - including product lines such as the Cyber-shot, the 'α' series and the HandyCam - progressively helping to improve the technology around cameras and photography in general.

PNG PNG (Image)

File extension .png
Category Image File
Description PNG pronounced ping is a format for storing bitmapped (raster) images on computers. It was created originally to replace the GIF file format when it was announced that the companies who created the GIF format wanted royalties. PNG uses indexed colors and lossless compression (like a .GIF file), but without those copyright limitations; it cannot be animated like a GIF image.
Actions
Technical Details PNG images are in many ways better than .GIF as they also include an 8-bit transparency channel, which allows the colors in the image to fade from opaque to transparent; GIF images only support fully opaque or fully transparent pixels. PNG supports palettes of 24-bit RGB colors, RGB images or greyscale or RGB images. PNG was intended to be able to transfer images on the Internet, not professional graphics, and so does not support other colour spaces (such as CMYK).
