PNG to GIF converter
PNG stands for Portable Network Graphics and is a lossless image file format used for storing graphics on the web. PNG files are supported by most modern web browsers and can be scaled up or down without loss of quality. Compared to traditional bitmap formats like JPEG and GIF, PNG produces smaller files with better compression, resulting in higher image quality.
PNGs support transparency, alpha blending, anti-aliasing, and multiple identifiers. They also include 8-bit and 24-bit color depths which can produce smaller file sizes than more traditional formats such as GIF. Additionally, the ICC color profile can be included with any PNG file for improved color accuracy.
The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is an 8-bit image file format that is widely used to display animation and graphics. It supports up to 256 colors and is often used to display small web graphics for logos or simple animations. It can be used both for static images and for animated images, and generally compresses images better than other image formats.
The GIF format supports data compression, but does not support animation or sound. It is also limited in its ability to provide better image quality than other image formats such as JPEG. However, GIFs are more suitable for use on the web because of their small size and relatively fast loading times.
