This is correct, and in fact what I was going to post until you got there
first. The only slight qualification (and one that I'm not sure is relevant
for this discussion, but is worth mentioning for completeness), is that the
PNG format allows you to define a nominal PPI resolution in the file
metadata. It is completely up to applications what they do with that
information: some just ignore it, whereas others such as Adobe Illustrator
use it to inform the initial (also nominal) dimensions of the image when
you drag it into an Illustrator document.

Essentially, though, a PNG is just as you say â a definition of the pixels
themselves.

Cheers,
Joe
