       png - Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format


       PNG  (Portable  Network Graphics) is an extensible file format for the lossless, portable,
       well-compressed storage of raster images.  PNG provides a patent-free replacement for GIF,
       and  can  also  replace  many common uses of TIFF. Indexed-color, grayscale, and truecolor
       images are supported, plus an optional alpha channel.  Sample depths range from  1  to  16
       PNG  is  designed to work well in online viewing applications, such as the World Wide Web,
       so it is fully streamable with a progressive display option.   PNG  is  robust,  providing
       both  full  file  integrity  checking  and  fast,  simple detection of common transmission
       errors.  Also, PNG can store gamma and chromaticity data for improved  color  matching  on
       heterogeneous platforms.
