A PNG file is a newer type of image format that uses lossless compression, which makes it bigger in size. Similar to the GIF format except there are no copyright limitations. However, if you want animations you'll need an alternative, like MP4 or GIF.
Use PNG-8 over JPEG for images with simple colors (logos, icons, buttons) Use PNG-24 over GIF for photographic images. Use PNG over JPEG when using alpha transparency. Use JPEG over PNG for photographic images.
An important benefit, and oftentimes deciding factor for using a PNG file, is that– unlike a JPG–they support transparency. This allows you to have a transparent background around an irregular-shaped object and avoid a white (or other colored) box outlining your image.
Both PNG and TIFF files benefit from lossless compression, meaning that no matter how often you save, open, or resize them, they'll maintain their quality. However, TIFF files offer users a choice between lossy and lossless compression, which can help reduce the file size if this is a priority.
A PNG is an image file type that allows you to have no background color. Most images cover a certain number of pixels and have color in all of those pixels, even if that color is white. A transparent background has nothing in the background pixels, allowing what's behind it to show through.
