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.

Description🔵 APNG stands for Animated Portable Network Graphics, which is a file format for animated images, similar to animated GIFs, but with better support for transparency and alpha channel. APNG is a raster graphics file format that supports both static and animated images.
Technical details🔵 APNG is based on the PNG (Portable Network Graphics) format, which uses lossless data compression to store images. Like PNG, APNG uses the same file structure and chunk-based format. APNG files are composed of a series of PNG frames with an optional delay between each frame to create animation. Each frame can also have its own color palette. One of the main advantages of APNG over animated GIFs is its support for 24-bit images and full alpha channel transparency, providing better image quality and smoother transitions. APNG also has the ability to play animations in a loop, pause and resume playback, and control the animation speed. APNG files can be created using various image editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop and GIMP, which support the APNG format. APNG files can be opened and viewed using web browsers that support the format, including Firefox, Safari, and Google Chrome, or using specialized image viewers and editors.
