PNG files are a widely used graphics file format used in areas where high-quality images (often with transparency) are required while also retaining a small file size. They are one of the most common formats of file used for web and print mediums and are particularly useful for logos, icons, and other images where multi-level transparency is desired.

The format itself was created in the 1990's with the main aim of storing computer graphics in a high-quality format while minimising the required storage space. The longer-term aim was to displace the GIF file format and make PNG the number one format for non-lossy, high-quality image formats on the then-burgeoning world wide web.

One of the selling points of the PNG format is its support for multiple levels of transparency, making it superior to the GIF format, which can only handle a single level of transparency. Also, like GIFs, the PNG format supports palletizing image colors down to 256 or 16 colors to help reduce the file size of the PNG.

AVIF (AV1 Image File Format) is a cutting-edge image file format that utilizes the AV1 video codec to achieve highly efficient compression while maintaining superior image quality. Developed by the Alliance for Open Media, AVIF is designed to replace older image formats like JPEG, PNG, and WebP by offering significant advantages in terms of size reduction and visual fidelity. AVIF leverages the AV1 video codec's advanced compression techniques, such as intra-frame and inter-frame coding, to efficiently represent images with a wide range of colors and details.

One of the main benefits of AVIF is its ability to deliver smaller file sizes compared to traditional image formats, making it ideal for web applications where reducing loading times and saving bandwidth are crucial. The high compression efficiency allows AVIF files to retain excellent image quality even at low bitrates, ensuring that images displayed on websites or shared through various platforms look crisp and vibrant. Additionally, AVIF supports a wide range of features, including transparency, HDR (High Dynamic Range) content, and animated images, making it a versatile choice for various multimedia applications.

Despite its numerous advantages, AVIF is still a relatively new format, and its widespread adoption depends on web browser and application support. As of my last update in September 2021, major web browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, and Edge have already started to support AVIF, but older browsers and platforms may not fully support it. However, with its potential to revolutionize the way images are compressed and displayed on the internet, AVIF is expected to become increasingly popular as more platforms and software incorporate compatibility for this innovative image format.
