Benefits of Converting PNG to Word.
Converting your PNG file to Word may make it easier to send, amend and print. Here are some of the reasons you may choose to use a PNG image in the first place:
- Transparency - PNG files have multiple levels of transparency, so you can adjust opacity levels from completely transparent to opaque. This is handy for creating a website logo or illustration.
- Editing - PNG files are ideal for storing images in the middle of the editing process. Thanks to its minimum compression loss, you won’t lose any detail or quality when compressing or re-saving the file.
- Presentation - The PNG format has a wide colour depth and can handle up to 16 million colours. This makes it the ideal format for online images containing texts, line arts and graphics.
