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.
