PNG8 and alpha transparency

Recommended Posts


It seems that PNG 8 format support alpha transparency (and gracefully degrades in IE6).

See : http://www.sitepoint.com/blogs/2007/09/ ... ar-winner/

and : http://yuiblog.com/blog/2008/12/08/imageopt-5/

and also : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portable_N ... y_of_image

Paint.Net does not seems to handle PNG 8 alpha transparency (only "gif like" transparency) when saving to PNG 8.

Am I right ?

If so, could this feature be added to any future release ?

Thank you,


PS : The documentation does not seems to be up to date (for example, the part about saving images : no word about PNG color depth), is there a "wiki like" back end ? I would be glad to contribute !
