High Efficiency Image Coding

File extension .heic
File category images
Description High efficiency image file format (HEIC) is coded by HEVC codec (High efficiency Video Compression). It is usually used by Apple for the HEIF image format. It contains an image sequence and it is good for live photos. The best part is, it is storage saving. It can store two times more pictures than the JPEG format in the same storage as it has the next-generation file compression.
Technical details HEIC is a lossy compressed format coded by HEVC, which was flourished by MPEG too. Both have transparency and can store multiple images. Differing from JPG files, which allows 8-bit colors, HEIC files can handle 16-bit colors. HEIC files are not free from compatibility issues. Still, today, third-party apps and computer programs have issues interpreting HEIC files. IOS users may forcibly stop storing images as HEIC format by changing settings.

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.
