Sony Digital Camera Alpha Raw Image Format

File extension .arw
File category images
Description ARW is a format used to store raw captured photos by Sony digital cameras without their compression to other file formats such as JPEG. The format adopts basic specifications from TIFF and maintains the full set of image data. In some cases, the data is minimally adjusted depending on the camera type or model. Unlike image file formats compressed like JPEG, files using ARW are larger, details and cannot be easily viewed. This means they require special programs that can be used in opening and converting them.
Technical details The ARW format provides its users with the freedom to make changes or adjustments to an image as they see fit. Converting ARW images allows viewing of images on internet browsers. The camera model used determines the type of format captured despite using a similar .arw file extension. This is possible due to the presence of sensor variations in cameras. The differences presented are significant determinants of the software used to view, convert, or store an image.

CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format

File extension .gif
File category images
Description GIF, Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular bitmap image formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It also supports transparent views of various animations. Such files are used to develop web advertising with sequentially changing pictures and the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 colors of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss because of the compression technique. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. Many applications open the extension to view and process images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
Technical details The format was developed by Compuserve specialists, especially for its use in the web environment, which provided broad public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm to carry out a parallel process with the removal of segments containing insufficient information. This ensures the preservation of high-quality pictures. Thanks to the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, the format handles graphic files with repeating sections well, particularly images with a large number of single-color pixels horizontally. Interlaced data storage is also possible. Scan-line data is compressed to the smallest size. Reducing the number of colors required to create an image is provided by removing shades unnecessary to perform this process. The range of available GIF colors is from 2 (black and white) to 256 while reducing the number of colors leads to a decrease in the file size.
