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.

Windows Metafile

File extension .wmf
File category images
Description WMF format is a positional graphics domiciled with Windows; it aids the direct display of an image on the screen of a device, in a particular way. Though a graphical format, the WMF is not limited to use in image files. Any object – text, image, video all require a code for pixel displacement to enjoy accurate rendering, made possible by WMF in early PCs. WMF format also assists with holding copied information, and subsequent pasting in another document or environment. Though initially designed as a format that saves documents in 16-bit fragments, WMF equally supports 24-bit RGB-color palette and is used for exporting graphics from one application to the other.
Technical details Microsoft released the first version of the WMF file type in 1988, as a part of Windows 3.0. However, with the 3.1 updates of Windows in 1992, significant upgrades were made to the format. The latest update to Windows MetaFile was released to the public in 2006. To date, the WMF file format still enjoys relevance in Microsoft Office packages like Word and PowerPoint. Since JPG and GIF have stolen the show among image file formats, WMF's popularity has waned, though it is still compatible with several computer programs. Graphical Device Interface is a series of commands that make a real-time drawing made possible by the WMF, which holds some code before displaying the image on the screen.
