    This was very insightful, it’s interesting how an image format isn’t “just an image” but has its own additional code to go along with it. Well all images are code in a sense, but this type is much more “active.” I hope that image formats continue to grow and advance. I’ve been hearing rumors of animated pngs going mainstream for a while for it doesn’t look like that’s happening any time soon. I do hope that there will be another animated format that’s widely supported in the future with more colors and quality than gif. They would have to work on compacting it, but with what I’ve seen in areas like css3 animation, I think it would be possible to integrate a similar effect into gif-like format with png quality. I guess we’ll see what the future may bring. XD

      I linked you to this article on DM because I knew that CSS3 animations are your thing LOL. I still have to master that.

      There is actually a tutorial that I saw the other day from CSS-Tricks on doing CSS3 animations using SVGs. I think you should check it out, maybe test a thing or two with it. Could be really helpful with your future animations and that all your vector illustrations would look so bright and crisp if you export them in SVG format. Hope this helps!

      I’ve also read about animated PNGs too. It’d be so awesome to make them, especially with those animated link buttons. I used to make them some 10+ years ago, but laziness got to me LOL. I don’t know about animated PNGs, but it looks like animating SVGs makes the colors and images look very sharp.
