Photo CD

File extension .pcd
File category images
Description Kodak – the photography giant needed a way of effectively archiving images on different data storage media, the solution they came up with is the Photo CD format. Taking pictures with cameras with sophisticated lenses and documents scanned with high definition scan heads always generates high-resolution copies that could eat up chunks of memory space on Kodak devices. Forthwith, the PCD format utilizes an image compression system to encode images in slices of 24-bit. A PCD file can support images of multiple resolutions, with the highest being 6144×4096 pixels.
Technical details Though PCD format supports image resolutions as high as 6144×4096 pixels, images are mostly encoded unto storage media at a resolution of 3072×2048 pixels. However, these two image resolutions are encoded with a similar color depth of 24-bit. Saving images in the PCD format is quite similar to the proprietary high-resolution video compression technology patented by Apple Inc.

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.
