PNG Images

PNGs are raster-based image files, which means they are made up of a grid of pixels, with each pixel filled with one color to create a larger image. PNGs are a versatile image format because they support lossless compression as well as transparency, two things the other popular image format — JPG — does not support. Generally, PNGs are ideal for graphics-based images, such as logos, watermarks, icons, and other pieces of design. You can also use the PNG format for photographs, although JPG is more suited for this purpose.

PNG to GIF Conversion

If you try to convert a regular PNG to GIF, the image will have no animation. The tool converts a PNG image to GIF format by reducing the color depth and compressing the image data. For regular PNG, the end product will be a static image. Keep in mind that the image quality may be reduced because GIF has a limited color palette.

Animated PNG (APNG) is an extension of the PNG format that supports animation. It works similarly to animated GIFs, but with support for 24-bit images and 8-bit transparency. To convert APNG to GIF, you must use a conversion tool that can take the animation frames in an APNG file and convert them to GIF format. The process involves exporting each frame as a separate image, and then assembling the frames into an animated GIF file. As with converting a static PNG to GIF, the quality of the animation may be reduced due to the limitations of the GIF format.
