Some people are under the mistaken impression that they must use .png
for one of a number of reasons.

- Some think such files are "more portable"
- Some think they have to use .png because of patent/copyright
on other formats

My experience is that .png files can be 10 to 10,000 times larger
than a .jpeg or .gif.

As far as 'copyright' goes, the issue may be more with the subject
matter or content of the image than the format in which it is stored!

For photos, backgrounds and such, use jpeg - when the individual pixels
matter, use png.

png has largely replaced gif due to a Unisys compression patent issue.
LZW or some such.
