It means that you should place your main subject in the center because that’s where the audience will look first.

What is a PNG Image?

by Lina Thorne Lina Thorne Updated · Posted in Crop Photo

Portable Network Graphics or abbreviated as PNG is a raster graphics file format. At the moment, it’s probably a second popular format for images shared on the Internet; and not without a reason. However, PNG tends to be especially wide-spread among web-designers and people who do a lot of graphics work.

PNG can handle sharp edges and lines of varied thickness, text and solid colors rather excellently. But its key advantage is that it utilizes lossless compression. This type of compression allows you to compress images without any loss of information. Thus, the original image quality will be maintained. More to that, if you compress a PNG image, thanks to lossless compression, you’ll be able to restore it back to the original without any issues. The image quality won’t change even if you have to edit and save your PNG image multiple times. The same cannot be said for compressing JPG format, for instance.
