Publisher: O'Reilly 1999
Number of pages: 321
PNG, the Portable Network Graphics image format, is one little piece of the puzzle. In PNG: The Definitive Guide, I attempt to make PNG a little less puzzling by explaining the motivations behind PNG's creation, the ways in which it can be used, and the tools that can manipulate it. The intended audience is anyone who deals with PNG images, whether as an artist, a programmer, or a surfer on the World Wide Web.
