GIF dosen't support alpha transparency, it dosen't support high color, it dosen't support a ton of things, and I think you should add APNG support to your png library.

Do you mean Animated PNG? It's not really well supported in browsers, so I'm not sure how much help that would be.

Yeah, That's the catch 22, if you don't add it because it's not supported, it won't be supported because they're a pain to make. and yes, I was referring to Animated PNG.

APNG format is very common on the Internet, and very uncomfortable to upload pictures in PNG, and use third party software to create animation

this I want to know when will be the opportunity to save the animation in APNG?

Animated Image Sequence.


Hi, I am a year 3 computer science student at the National University of Singapore. I am currently doing a study on animated image sequence. The most popular format for animated image sequence is GIF. However, there are many people who feel that there are better formats available. One of the such format is the animated PNG (APNG). Despite its advantages over GIF, APNG has been rarely heard by content creators. One postulation is the lack of authoring tools and browser support, hence the lack of accessibility in creating such animations. I would like to ask if the future version of Photoshop will ever allow the creation of APNG files. If no, why not? Will the key reason be due to the lack of browser support?

Since Photoshop still does not even support WebP natively, I would not hold my breath waiting for APNG support :/

Despite the fact that there is still a lack of browser support for APNG, I think Photoshop should begin supporting them. If people start using APNG on their websites, perhaps browser developers will catch on and start supporting them.

Please add support for APNG images to Photoshop..


APNG is a form of the PNG file extension that allows for animated images (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APNG). APNGs, although less popular that GIFs, are superior.
