Provides support to load and save images in the PNG format. This format uses a lossless compression algorithm and is best suited for images that can not be compressed using lossy algorithms like normal maps. Tends to produce larger files than formats with lossy compression.

Files of this format have the .png file extension.

This module uses the PNG library to load and save png images. On Unix systems the library is expected to be installed on the system already. On Windows systems the library is compiled into the module.
