Information about PNG and DDS file formats
|🔸 File format
|🔸 Full name
|PNG - Portable Network Graphics
|DDS - Microsoft Direct Draw Surface
|🔸 File extension
|🔸 MIME type
|🔸 Developed by
|PNG Development Group
|🔸 Type of format
|lossless bitmap image format
|Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet. However, PNG itself does not support animation at all. MNG is an extension to PNG that does. Members of the PNG Group designed it.
|The DirectDraw Surface container file format (uses the filename extension DDS) is a Microsoft format for storing data compressed with the proprietary S3 Texture Compression (S3TC) algorithm, which can be decompressed in hardware by GPUs.
|🔸 Technical details
|PNG supports palette-based images (with palettes of 24-bit RGB or 32-bit RGBA colors), grayscale images (with or without alpha channel), and full-color non-palette-based RGB[A] images (with or without alpha channel). However, PNG was designed for transferring images on the Internet, not for professional-quality print graphics, and therefore does not support non-RGB color spaces such as CMYK.
|The DirectDraw Surface format is useful for storing graphical textures and cubic environment maps as compressed and uncompressed data files. The Microsoft Windows file extension for this data format is '.dds'.
