Here is a piece of information about these formats.
is known to be a bitmapped image format in which lossless data compression is used. It is also called Portable Network Graphics.
PNG was created on purpose to improve and replace GIF. The main advantages of PNG format are that it supports palette-based RGB or RGBA images and pixel partly transparent mode.
PNG was made for getting images with the quality that gif can't provide.
This format is among formats with the best quality of image saving. There is one more benefit - PNG images can either use palette-indexed color or be made of several channels.
The bit depth of the channel, also known as number of bits allocated per pixel counts up to 24 bits.
is a bitmap image format as well. This format supports up to 8 bits per pixel, so a single image has a palette of up to 256 distinct colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space.
GIF images are usually stored by means of "indexed colors", that is why a gif image can be of smaller size than a jpg one.
It's not common to use gif for storing high quality pictures, though it supports animations and allows a palette of 256 colors for each frame.
It's more often used for simple images (graphs or logos) with solid areas of color. When you are converting gif to png
, remember that transparency of pixels will be saved.
Once again we are rawing your attention to that gif to png converter freeware will return png image with a larger size than gif.
It happens so because it has 24-32bit color depth and compression nature of png, and gif is a bitmap without good compression, but with low color depth, that's is why compressed png is larger than
gif, it doesn't depend on our online free converter. PNG without compression will have file size up to 10 times larger
than png with compression level 1, you may assure by seeing examples down the page.
Remember, this tool is absolutely free and is very easy to use.
