Week 13

PNG 32

  • It uses flexible JPEG RGB color model
  • Completely loss less compression method
  • PNG image is much larger file size then a JPEG
  • Reproduces complex transparency setting


  • Uses palette based color model like GIF
  • Can not animate life GIF files
  • Offer transparency but either solid or completely transparent

Take pictures into Fireworks, change the file format to PNG8. Switch to alpha transparency to help with picking colors. Older version of browser won’t show the transparent parts but will render it without as to not know it was supposed to be transparent.
