PDF is a Adobe’s proprietary file format used in its Acrobat application as a way to publish documents electronically, with good text and graphics formatting, and a modicum of document security – documents are usually rendered for “Read Only”.

PNG – Portable Network Graphics
PNG (pronounced “ping”) is used for lossless compression of images to show on the Internet. PNG can handle images with millions of colors and is utilized to create background transparency without jagged edges. Unfortunately, a PNG image has a bigger file size than if the image was saved as a GIF or JPG. A minor inconvenience is that it does not show up on older browser versions.
