PNG is a file format used to save and display images.
Please note that PNG File Format is not directly applicable to Brush Ninja.
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a file format that is primarily designed for use on the web. Unlike other popular image formats like JPEG and GIF, PNG uses lossless compression techniques that doesn’t degrade the quality of the image. This means that even after saving an image in PNG format, you won’t lose any of its original quality.
Brush Ninja animated gif maker has an option for saving all frames as PNG files. This is useful if you want to edit the frames in another program, or if you want to use the frames in a video editor.
PNG files support transparency and alpha channels, which means that parts of the image can be made transparent or semi-transparent. For animators, this feature is especially useful when creating animations with overlapping objects or when they want to blend multiple images together seamlessly.
Moreover, PNG’s lossless compression allows animators to work with high-quality images without worrying about losing any details during compression. This makes it ideal for creating animations that require precise color accuracy and sharp details.
Another advantage offered by PNG over other formats is its support for gamma correction and color profiles. Gamma correction ensures that colors appear consistent across different devices while color profiles ensure accurate color reproduction on different displays.
Additionally, unlike GIFs that have limitations on their color palette due to their 8-bit encoding scheme, PNGs support up to 24-bit RGB encoding which allows for a broader range of colors in animations.
