Chapter 19. Designing for the Web > Optimizing a PNG-8 Document

Optimizing a PNG-8 Document

The PNG-8 file format is used primarily for images that contain solid colors with sharp edges—clipart, text, line art, and logos—and was designed as an alternative to the GIF file format. Since the PNG-8 format generates an image with a maximum of 256 colors, it significantly reduces an images file size. While similar to the GIF file format, the PNG-8 format is not completely supported by older browsers. However, it is considered a native format to the creation of Flash animation movies.
