PNG PNG stands for portable network graphics. It is the raster graphics format associated with the .png filename extension. Unlike GIF format, the limitation of 256 colors does not hold with the PNG format. In fact this among other reasons was the motivation behind development of the PNG format to improve upon the GIF format. The PNG format however uses a single image format and thus does not support animations. Because the format was engineered to ease the distribution of graphic files across computer networks it is also not well suited for professional graphics.
PPM The .ppm file extension is used for Portable PixMap format files and is intended to be an intermediate format that can be used in the development and conversion of other file formats. This format was specifically designed so that it could easily be exchanged between various platforms. It is very simple but not very storage efficient. Before the PPM format was introduced, Jef Poskanzer invented the PBM format in the year 1980 for transmission of monochrome bitmaps as ASCII text in email messages. He also developed a tool library for easy conversion of the PBM files to other graphical formats and vice versa. This library was called Pbmplus and was released in 1988. Later Poskanzer developed the PPM format along with the PGM format and the requisite tools that were added to Pbmplus.
