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.

A PSD file, short for "Photoshop Document," is a proprietary file format created and primarily used by Adobe Photoshop, a popular graphics editing software. It is the native file format for Photoshop, meaning it can preserve all the layers, image adjustments, text, and other elements that make up a design. PSD files are widely used by graphic designers, photographers, and other creative professionals to work on complex projects and retain maximum flexibility during the design process. The format allows for non-destructive editing, enabling users to modify individual elements without affecting the overall composition.

One of the main advantages of PSD files is their support for layers. Each layer contains a specific element of the design, such as an image, text, or adjustment, making it easy to manage and modify different components independently. Layers facilitate the creation of intricate designs and allow for easy experimentation without altering the original content. When working on a PSD file, users can control the visibility, opacity, blending modes, and other properties of each layer, offering unparalleled creative freedom.

It's important to note that while PSD files are excellent for editing purposes, they are not ideal for sharing or displaying on the web due to their large size and proprietary nature. To make the files more accessible and portable, they can be converted to other formats, such as JPEG or PNG, after the design process is complete. Overall, PSD files are a versatile and essential tool for professional designers, enabling them to craft stunning visuals and unleash their creativity.
