Most of the images I use on this website are PNGs (Portable Network Graphics.) The reason I use them is because they are lossless and look great when they are transparent. Most modern browsers support transparent PNGs and they can help make a website look great. However, when you create a PNG in MS Paint, Photoshop, etc. you may find they’re a lot larger in size than JPG of GIF files. In this guide you’ll learn how to compress the files from the right-click context menu in Vista.
