Adobe Photoshop Document

File extension .psd
File category images
Description PSD – is an image created by one of the most popular graphic editors of Adobe Photoshop. Together with this format, a wide range of data from "Photoshop" is available, including texts, graphic layers or notes. The extension can support multiple shades of gray, monochrome images, as well as CMYK and RGB color models. Such files can be converted to various formats (JEPG, PNG and others) for the purpose of subsequent transfer or storage. After changing the format, all the layers are transformed into one, which does not happen when saving with the PSD extension. In this case, they are available for viewing and editing, which makes them especially useful for working with drafts of various documents. The format is irreplaceable when saving the intermediate results. It is supported by most versions of Photoshop, as well as other Adobe programs.
Technical details The PSD extension is characterized by the ability to support a variety of visualization options, including a mask, spot colors, two-color settings, clipping. In some cases, there are files with the .psb extension, which support a resolution limit of 30 thousand pixels in width and height. PSD files use the RLE compression algorithm, which allows to compress with minimal loss. However, they are still large, so it is better to use archivers for storing them on disk.

CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format

File extension .gif

Description GIF – is one of the most popular formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It supports various animations, including its transparent views. Such files are used for the development of web advertising with sequentially changing pictures, as well as the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 shades of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. The extension is opened by many applications for viewing and processing images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
Technical details The format was developed by Compuserve specialists specially for its use in the web environment, which provided wide public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm that allows to carry out a process, in parallel 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, in particular, 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.
