What is PNG file?


PNG is an acronym for 'Portable Network Graphic'. PNG is a lossless compression image file format developed to replace the older, GIF file format. When you open up a PNG file, you will see that it looks like any other graphic. The difference between JPEG and PNG files is that the pixel color information is stored in 8 bits per pixel (giving 4 levels of grayscale) rather than 24 bits per pixel (giving 16.7 million levels of grayscale).
