Aspose.Total for Python via .NET" API is a comprehensive package of various APIs that can help Python developers to automate the process of converting a PNG file to PST format. It includes two APIs, namely “Aspose.Words for Python via .NET” and “Aspose.Email for Python via .NET”. The conversion process is a two-step process. Firstly, the Word file is loaded and rendered into HTML using “Aspose.Words for Python via .NET”. Secondly, the converted HTML is loaded using “Aspose.Email for Python via .NET” and saved into PST format. This API is easy to use and provides a reliable and efficient way to convert PNG to PST format. It also supports various other formats such as Email, Images and Microsoft Word formats. With this API, developers can easily add the feature of PNG to PST conversion within their application.
How to Convert PNG to PST in Python
- Open the source PNG file using Document class
- Call the
savemethod while specifying output HTML file path and relevant HTML Save options as parameter. So your PNG file is converted to HTML at the specified path
- Now Load the saved HTML file using MailMessage.load
- Call the save method with relevant file path. So finally the PNG is converted
- For PNG to PST conversion, Python 3.5 or later is required
- Reference APIs within the project directly from PyPI ( Aspose.Words and Aspose.Email )
- Or use the following pip command
pip install aspose.wordsand
pip install Aspose.Email-for-Python-via-NET
- Moreover, Microsoft Windows or Linux based OS (see more for Words and Email ) and for Linux check additional requirements for gcc and libpython and follow step by step instructions INSTALL

What is PNG File Format?
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a widely used raster graphics file format that was designed as a replacement for the older GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) format. Unlike GIF, which has a limited color palette and supports only indexed colors, PNG supports true color and grayscale images with a rich color depth.
The PNG format utilizes lossless compression, which means that it can reduce file size without sacrificing image quality. This makes it suitable for storing graphics that require high detail and clarity, such as photographs, illustrations, and logos. PNG files are often used on the web for images that need transparency, as PNG supports alpha channel transparency, allowing for smooth blending of images onto different backgrounds.
One of the advantages of PNG is that it supports both interlaced and non-interlaced images. Interlaced PNGs load gradually, displaying a low-resolution version of the image before progressively rendering the higher-resolution details. This feature is especially useful for large images or slow internet connections, as it provides a better user experience by showing a preview while the image loads.
PNG files can be created and edited with various graphics software, such as Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, and Paint.NET. They are widely supported by modern web browsers, image viewers, and editing tools across different operating systems.
What is PST File Format?
The Outlook Personal Storage Table (PST) file format is a proprietary file format used by Microsoft Outlook to store email messages, contacts, calendar items, tasks, and other data. PST files are created and used by Microsoft Outlook for both the desktop client and the web-based version, Outlook on the web (previously known as Outlook Web App or OWA).
PST files are typically saved with a .pst file extension and are stored locally on the user’s computer or on a network server. They serve as a centralized repository for all Outlook data and allow users to access their emails, contacts, and other information even when offline.
The structure of a PST file consists of several layers, including a root structure, which contains the overall organization of the file, and various data structures that hold specific types of Outlook items. These structures enable efficient storage and retrieval of email messages, attachments, folders, and other Outlook data.
PST files have a maximum size limit imposed by the version of Outlook being used. In earlier versions of Outlook (Outlook 2002 and earlier), the PST file size limit was 2 GB. However, in later versions (Outlook 2003 and onwards), the PST file format was improved, and the size limit was increased to 20 GB (Outlook 2003 and 2007) and then to 50 GB (Outlook 2010 and later). Additionally, Outlook 2013 introduced the Unicode format for PST files, allowing for even larger file sizes and better support for non-English languages.
Managing and maintaining PST files is crucial to ensure optimal performance and data integrity. Regular backups and periodic file maintenance, such as compacting and repairing PST files, can help prevent corruption and data loss.
