Extended Error Information

Remarks

Use the ExportPNG CoClass to export your map to PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format.  PNG is a raster format designed for use on the Web. It supports 24-bit color and is compressed.  PNG files also have the ability to define a transparent color.  This allows part of the image to display as transparent in a web browser, allowing background images or colors to show through.  This format is gaining popularity in the web design community.

The PNG format uses "lossless" compression, making it ideal for transfer to image editing applications where it may go through multiple edit and save cycles.  Lossless compression guarantees no pixel data will be lost during the compression process.
