File extension .JNG
The JNG (JPEG Network Graphic) file extension is a .jpg based image type typically used for web pages. It is an extension of the JPEG format, containing both bitmap-based images and alpha channels for transparency. It is similar to the GIF format but with twice the color range, making it suitable for graphics on webpages that need to be compressed.
Uses and Technical Details
JNG allows web developers to achieve better image quality for their websites with less disk space usage. Targetting images with a known platform standard requires less viewing effort, as many browsers support JNG images without the need of external plug-ins. The JNG file contains a JPEG-compressed 8-bit grayscale or 24-bit RGB image, 8-bit alpha channel, optional comment textual information about the file and image data, and optional gamma/chromaticity information. Other than its image compression capabilities, when compared to other file graphic formats like GIF or PNG, JNG allows animation, variable transparency, and detailed alpha channel control which can give more control over how an image is displayed on screen.
Other File Extensions
The JNG file extension is similar to other image formats such as .gif, .png, .jpeg, and .webp, but in many cases has better image quality with less disk space usage than these other formats.
The power of JNG can be harnessed using modern software such as Adobe Photoshop from Adobe Systems, Corel PaintShop from Corel Corporation, Microsoft PictureIt! from Microsoft Corporation, or Ulead PhotoImpact from Ulead Systems.
After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .JNG) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .JNG extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .JNG file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .JNG extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .JNG extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .JNG file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .JNG file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .JNG file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .JNG file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .JNG file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
