The EMF file format was first introduced by Microsoft in the 1980s as a format for storing vector graphics-based images. The main reason for using a vector-based format was to enable an EMF image to be scaled without any pixelation, as happens with other bitmap-based formats.

Contained within an EMF file are the building blocks of the vector image, elements such as lines, curves, and more. Included with these low-level elements are color details and other metadata used in the rendering process. As EMF files are vector-based, complex images can be saved with relatively little storage space.

There are applications that can still edit EMF files, including the vector file editor Inkscape; however, EMF files are considered a legacy format with better modern alternatives such as SVG that offer better support and more features.

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 minimizing 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.
