PNG Image Format PNG Converter
PNG is a common type of image file. The file extension PNG is short for ‘Portable Network Graphic’, and the format was created to offer improvements over the GIF format. Like JPG, PNG is a 2D ‘raster’ image format. However, unlike JPG, PNG files can have transparent or semi-transparent backgrounds around a design. This makes them perfect to use for company or brand logos or graphics that need to be placed in documents or over other images. They are also sometimes used for detailed graphs or diagrams online.
PNGs use lossless compression, which offers high-quality images with more colours. However, this often means PNG files are bigger than some other formats like JPG. The PNG format is open source, and you can open these files using almost all devices, image editors and viewers. Many smartphones now allow you to easily remove backgrounds and create PNGs of individual parts of photos.
GIF Image Format GIF Converter
GIF stands for Graphical Interchange Format. Although traditionally still images, GIFs can also include short bursts of soundless animation. They will open in almost all image programs and on almost all devices. GIFs are raster images made up of pixels and containing up to 256 colours. To make GIFs easier to share, the image or animation is compressed with lossless compression, creating a smaller file size without noticeably affecting image quality. GIFs are often used on websites for animated objects and navigation buttons, and on social media to share video clips and animated images.
GIFs were developed in 1987. They were mostly replaced by JPG and PNG until they were integrated into messaging and social media apps and started being used for memes. Billions of animated GIFs are now sent between users or posted online every day. GIFs are big business and they’re widely used by advertisers and marketeers. Many film and TV companies produce and publish their own GIFs as part of their viral marketing strategies.
