This format is used for storing several types of bitmaps, including animations. MNG allows you to store lossy and lossless images with compression. This format provides you with more options than GIF for saving animated files while keeping the original image size.
This format was developed by Apple for storing vector and bitmap images with metadata. It was the main format for the QuickDraw graphics software. PCT supports 32-bit and 24-bit images. At the moment, the format is obsolete and has been superseded by more functional solutions.
