Quality control

For many reasons, distributing a PNG can be a lot easier than distributing a GIF. A PNG file can be compressed, without losing any of its original quality. This means that, although image size decreases, its quality stays the same! When you convert a GIF to a PNG you will have an image of great quality whether the file size is the same or not.

Improved colors

We weren’t kidding about PNG replacing GIF! PNGs support a larger range of colors than GIFs, which makes them superior for color images. If some colors were not able to be portrayed in your GIF image, they will appear in your newly converted PNG image. Why not convert your image file to PNG if it means more colors available!
