MNG is an image file category format. It supports all possible PNG and JPEG compression algorithms (including gamma correction and translucency) in order to create animated images. It was available in the Mozilla browser from 2000 to 2003. Now supported by Konqueror browser. MNG, i.e. Multiple-image Network Graphics, has the closest connection with PNG. In 1995, when they started developing the PNG format, it was decided not to include animation support. For a simple reason: then this feature was used infrequently. And yet, we started working on MNG, that is, the version of PNG that supports animation. The initial version of the MNG specification was born in early 2001. The MNG format is a simplified raster analogue of Adobe Flash. Each frame has many layers, and they can be moved relative to each other, scaled, cropped. This explains the complexity of supporting the MNG format. As a result, the MNG file structure resembles the PNG structure. The only difference is the identification tag. And also that much more options of blocks (chunk) are applied. MNG frames are saved as PNG or JNG. Compared to GIF, this format supports animation. Compared to JPEG, it provides the smallest file size due to compression loss. Compared to PNG, compression is done without distortion. Now MNG is not supported by popular browsers and software, since it was replaced by a simpler APNG format.
PPM is an image file format that is included in the Netpbm open source graphics editor. This graphic format is convenient and simple. Other Netpbm formats that have found widespread use are PBM, i.e. Portable Bitmap, as well as PGM, i.e. Portable Graymap. This three graphic formats are sometimes referred to as PNM, i.e. Portable Format Anymap. PGM stores grayscale images. PMP is a collection of color images, which are intermediate files that are used when converting formats not so well known, using Portable Bitmap Utilities. And PPM files are mainly used on UNIX platforms that are based on Intel. These files are categorized as bitmap images. This is a 24-bit color image that has been formatted in text format. Takes every pixel with a number from zero to 65536 for storage. The color of the pixel is determined by the number. Contains data spaces, the height and width of the character, the maximum color values. Portable Pixmap uses an uncompressed low-performance format that can be compared with other bitmap image formats. This explains its rare use in order to store large images.
