Description

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.

PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.

Description

The EXR file format (OpenEXR) is an open source and free image file format developed by Industrial Light & Magic in 1999. The format was originally developed to be a multi channel, high-dynamic range raster image file format which has evolved to include additional features over the years.

The format stores binary image data that can be either 32-bit integer, 16-bit or 32-bit floating point which can also be compressed via a lossy or non-lossy compression method. The OpenEXR library is freely available to help developers implement the format within their applications.
