OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX development environments use this type of format. This type of format is used to save bitmap images of user interface environs and textures. Here one can keep compressed or uncompressed data. It is mainly used for developing 3D applications and games. Currently, game consoles are made based on this DDS format. This format has the ability to squeeze texture boxes "on the fly," which causes performance improvement while running the application.

Description
PNG – is a scan-line graphic format developed as an alternative to GIF, a commercial license. However, they are both raster image types. PNG is based on the best features of the predecessor, including lossless compression and transparent background support. The PNG technology ensures the preservation of all stages of editing and the restoration of the step by preserving the quality. However, it does not allow us to save several pictures in one file at once, limiting its use in the development of animated images.
Technical details
The PNG extension was proposed as a tool that helps to transfer and store images on the World Wide Web. The technology is limited to an 8-bit transparency channel so that you can adjust the colors from opaque to transparent. It supports 24-bit RGB colors, matching images, and shades of gray. However, as a non-professional format, PNG can not display other color spaces. Most programs allow you to open such files. They can also run in any browser. Images are different in small weight with good quality.
