RE: PNG image type

We generate PNG files with a GIF extension because there is an issue when Netscape read PNG files, even though we have tried with almost every possible combination for the MIME type, Netscape shows an erratic behavior when displaying files with a PNG extension.

If you want to modify this you will need to change an entry in the following registry key


Set the Extension value to png if you want your files to have a png extension.

Conversation: PNG image type

Subject: PNG image type


I use PNG format image generation whenever possible:

a PNG image is created, but the .GIF extension is used for

the generated image. Is there a way to generate a .PNG extension

for my files ?
