There are 3 file types use the .MNG file extension:
1. Multiple Network Graphic
An extension of the .PNG image format that uses indexed colors and supports image animations; similar to an animated .GIF file, but uses higher compression and features full alpha support (multi-level transparency).

2. Multiple-image Network Graphic
An MNG file is an animated image saved in the Multiple-image Network Graphics (MNG) file format. It contains multiple .PNG images that are shown in sequence to convey motion or animation. MNG files are similar to animated .GIF files, but use higher compression and support full alpha (multi-level transparency).
As the PNG Development Group developed the Portable Network Graphic (PNG) file format, they decided to create a separate file format to store animated PNGs. The group reasoned that creating separate file formats for still and animated PNGs would allow users to differentiate between still and animated images more easily. The animated PNG file format was named Multiple-image Network Graphics, or MNG.
Though the PNG format gained widespread acceptance, the MNG format did not. More commonly, users save and transfer animated images as GIFs. Some image viewing and editing applications still allow users to open, edit, and create MNG files, but some programs that previously supported MNG files, such as Mozilla Firefox, no longer do so.
You can open an MNG (Multipe-image Network Graphics) file in any of the following image viewing or editing programs:
- GIMP (cross-platform)
- ImageMagick (cross-platform)
- Irfanview (Windows)
- Gwenview (Linux)
