PNG is starting to be used more often now, but I’m still sitting with GIF and JPG. I understand that PNG is a GIF-replacement that doesn’t have questionable licensing issues, and it has better transparency options. It’s not good for photos (JPG) but very good for icons etc. (GIF). Am I right so far?
I don’t have any image editing that can work with it. Windows XP doesn’t, and neither does my aging PaintShopPro. What would be a good tool?
Most importantly though: Which browsers support PNG? Okay, if the user downloads the right plugin then any browser can be made to support it, but off the shelf, some users might be shut out. I want to deliver content to my mom too, and I don’t expect users to be on the cutting edge just because developers are.
Any comments you can share on this?
