A PS file, short for PostScript file, is a type of document format commonly used in the printing and graphics industry. It was developed by Adobe Systems in 1982 as a programming language that describes the appearance of a printed page. Unlike typical word processing files, PS files are not meant for direct editing by end-users. Instead, they contain commands and instructions that describe how the content should be rendered on the page, including text, images, and vector graphics.

PostScript files are widely used in professional printing environments because they provide a reliable and device-independent way of describing the layout and content of a page. Printers and other output devices equipped with PostScript interpreters can interpret the PS file and generate high-quality, consistent output regardless of the device's resolution or capabilities. This makes PS files ideal for tasks that require precise layout control, such as desktop publishing, graphic design, and commercial printing.

Over the years, the popularity of PostScript has diminished as more modern document formats like PDF (Portable Document Format) have emerged. However, PostScript remains an important part of printing workflows, and many printers still support it. Additionally, PostScript language concepts have influenced the development of other page description languages and printing standards, leaving a lasting impact on the industry's evolution.

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.
