PNG (Portable Network Graphics)

PNG is one of the most common graphic formats on the Internet. It was designed and engineered to replace the obsolete and more primitive GIF format. PNG provides the ability to compress images with little or no loss. This means that the photo or picture will not lose its original quality even with a significant degree of compression. This makes PNG great for displaying drawings with text such as screenshots, blueprints, diagrams, comics, and so on. Another distinguishing feature of the PNG format is its support for transparency, making it an excellent choice for use on websites. Images with transparent background are needed to display icons and other graphics on websites. The disadvantages of PNG include the larger file size compared to other popular formats such as JPG.

ICO (Windows Icon)

ICO is an image format that was originally used to store icons for folders, files, and programs in the Windows operating system. Along with the development of the Internet, ICO has also become widespread as an icon format for websites. A large number of websites have a file called favicon.ico that displays a small image in the browser address bar or search results next to the page title. ICO files typically contain square images with transparent backgrounds ranging in size from 16 by 16 to 256 by 256 pixels. The simultaneous presence of images of several sizes in the ICO file provides the ability to scale the icon, if necessary, without degrading the quality. The format also supports various color depths of -16 colors, 32, 64, 128, 256, 16-bit, and so on. Icons can be either black and white or color. Often, an ICO file is created using a PNG conversion.
