  • This template should not be used for:
    • images for which only a JPEG source is available; recompressing with PNG will not remove artifacts and may produce larger files
    • animated images. Although PNG does officially support animation, they are not widely supported by browsers, so GIF should be used instead
    • images which contain strictly vector (non-raster) data. Convert to SVG should be used in this case.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Images which should be in PNG format
