Thank you for all the time.
PNG is one of the oldest picture formats in data history. Almost any photo display or editing program can open them. Some forum software does not permit them because the files tend to be larger than a highly compressed jpg/jpeg. Remember that web sites pay for storage of all these pictures and pay for outbound data; pictures are a whole lot bigger than text and restricting to files with smaller sizes used to be a 'feature' of forum software.
If you don't like (or distrust) the picture software that came with your computer or phone, there are lots of choices. I use Irfan View.
Good luck and safe travels.
