NAME
       png - Portable Network Graphics (PNG) format

DESCRIPTION
       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
       bits.

       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  heteroge‐
       neous platforms.
