Does anyone know how well png images are supported, particularly png's with transparency, across the various email clients?
I know that older versions of Outlook couldn't handle PNGs, so we've not used them, but it's probably something we'll need to research more for the current generation of email clients.
I'm fairly sure it now supports 8 bit .pngs, but that removes transparency.
i haven't tested intensively yet but it looks promising and if the alpha transparency fail it display a regular index transparent image pretty well
Zapatoche... thanks for your input and the link. I especially liked the blog entry about the semi-transparent PNG8 option in FireWorks. A the start of the article I was one of those guys "furrowing their brows". Wow... I'm a believer now. Sweet! I love when a guy can learn something really cool like that.
cool hope you will have a good week end now :P. i was really surprised by this thing.
I've been working for a while with Photoshop only and cried my eyes out to have to bug myself with png support.
I'm a fervent sitepoint reader now.
