P ortable N etwork G raphics is a format for portable graphics, as you might surmise from the name. PNG unofficially stands for P NG's N ot G IF, which originates from the decision of Unisys and CompuServe to require royalties from programs using the GIF format since Unisys has a patent on the LZW compression format used therein. The main advantages which PNG has over GIF are:
  • alpha channels (variable transparency), gamma correction (cross-platform control of image brightness), and 2-D interlacing (a method of progressive display).
It also compresses better in almost every case, with the difference generally ranging from 10% to 30%. Since PNG is intended to be single-image format only, it doesn't feature multiple-image support. PNG also has the advantage that it has one and only one official pronunciation, i.e. ``ping.'' Standard PNG features include:
  • support for three main image types, i.e. truecolor, grayscale, and palette (with JPEG supporting the first two and GIF only the third);

2.2 PostScript printing
The concepts of the PostScript language were seeded in when John Warnock was working at Evans and Sutherland , a famous computer graphics company. At that time John Gaffney was developing an interpreter for a large three-dimensonal graphics database of New York harbour. Gaffney conceived the Design System language to process the graphics, very similar to the Forth programming language In Evans and Sutherland asked Warnock to move from the San Francisco bay area to their main headquarters in Utah , but he was not interested in moving. He then joined Xerox PARC to work with Martin Newell . They rewrote Design System to create JaM (John and Martin) which was used for VLSI design and the investigation of type and graphics printing. This work later evolved into an expanded system known as

PostScript Last modified: Friday, January 18, 2002 A page description language (PDL) developed by Adobe Systems. PostScript is primarily a language for printing documents on laser printers , but it can be adapted to produce images on other types of devices . PostScript is the standard for desktop publishing because it is supported by imagesetters, the very high-resolution printers used by service bureaus to produce camera-ready copy. PostScript is an object-oriented language , meaning that it treats images, including fonts , as collections of geometrical objects rather than as bit maps . PostScript fonts are called outline fonts because the outline of each character is defined. They are also called

    From the press release by Peter Szabo, its developer: "a2ping is a UNIX command line utility written in Perl that converts many raster image and vector graphics formats to EPS or PDF and other page description formats. Accepted input file formats are: PS (PostScript), EPS, PDF, PNG, JPEG, TIFF, PNM, BMP, GIF, LBM, XPM, PCX, TGA. Accepted output formats are: EPS, PCL5, PDF, PDF1, PBM, PGM, PPM, PS, markedEPS, markedPS, PNG, XWD, BMP, TIFF, JPEG, GIF, XPM. a2ping delegates the low-level work to Ghostscript (GS), pdftops and sam2p. a2ping fixes many glitches during the EPS to EPS conversion, so its output is often more compatible and better embeddable than its input."
