NAME
       mng - Multiple-image Network Graphics (MNG) format

DESCRIPTION
       MNG (Multiple-image Network Graphics) is	the animation extension	of the
       popular PNG image-format. PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is an	exten-
       sible  file  format for the lossless, portable, well-compressed storage
       of raster images.

       MNG has advanced	animation features which make it very useful as	a full
       replacement  for	 GIF  animations. These	features allow animations that
       are impossible with GIF or result in much smaller files as GIF.

       As MNG builds on	the same structure as PNG, it  is  robust,  extensible
       and  free  of patents. It retains the same clever file integrity	checks
       as in PNG.

       MNG also	embraces the lossy JPEG	image-format  in  a  sub-format	 named
       JNG, which allows for alpha-transparency	and color-correction on	highly
       compressed (photographic) images.
