    no more jpegs?

    Patents are getting a little out of hand if you ask me (I know this one was 17 years ago but it seems to fit in well with the sudden fload of them as of late)

    PNG (Portable Network Graphics)
    What is it

    PNG is an extensible file format for the lossless, portable, well-compressed storage of raster images. PNG provides a patent-free replacement for GIF and can also replace many common uses of TIFF. Indexed-color, grayscale, and truecolor images are supported, plus an optional alpha channel for transparency. Sample depths range from 1 to 16 bits per component (up to 48bit images for RGB, or 64bit for RGBA).
