|Description||🔵 .xls The .xls format is the default file format for spreadsheets created in Microsoft Excel, particularly in versions before Excel 007. This binary file format can store data in cells organized in rows and columns, and it supports formulas, charts, graphs, and various formatting features to manipulate and visualize dataThe .xls format was commonly used in business, finance, and any field requiring data analysis and presentation but has since been largely replaced by the more advanced .xlsx format.|
|Technical details||🔵 The `.xls` format, primarily for Microsoft Excel versions before 2007, stores spreadsheet elements like worksheets, formulas, and macros. As a proprietary binary format by Microsoft, its undocumented internal structure made third-party software compatibility challenging. This format includes binary records encapsulating data, formatting, and embedded objects, supporting multiple worksheets, various functions, and inter-sheet referencing. `.xls` files may contain Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) macros, enabling automation and complex calculations. It's supported not just in Excel but also in applications like OpenOffice Calc, with options to convert between `.xls` and other formats like `.xlsx`. Despite security concerns with macros, `.xls` is still used, mainly for its compatibility with older Excel versions and legacy systems, although the newer `.xlsx` format, introduced in Office 2007 with XML and ZIP technologies, offers improved efficiency and security.|

It's used for storing the entire composition including layers, channels, paths, and other elements that are part of a GIMP imageThe XCF format is designed to preserve all information GIMP can contain about an image; however, due to its specific nature, it's not widely supported outside of GIMP. For sharing, images in XCF format are often exported to more universally recognized formats like PNG or JPEG.|
|Technical details||🔵 The GIF (Graphics Interchange Format), introduced by CompuServe in 1987, is a bitmap image format with these characteristics: - Color Limitation: Supports only 256 colors, making it suitable for graphics or logos but not for detailed photographs. - Animation Support: Stores multiple images for animated effects, popular for looping animations and web graphics. - Lossless Compression: Uses LZW compression, reducing file size without quality loss, effective for uniform color images. - Transparency Support: Allows background transparency in images. - Interlacing Option: Offers an interlaced format for quicker loading on slow connections. - Standardization: Original version (87a) in 1987, enhanced version (GIF89a) in 1989 with animation and transparency improvements. - Aspect Ratio: Lacks inherent aspect ratio support. - Applications: Commonly used online for animation and transparency, less so for high-quality photography due to color limits. - No Audio Support: Cannot embed sound. - Metadata: Limited metadata compared to formats like JPEG. - Browser Support: Broadly supported in web browsers and image viewers. - Patent Issues: LZW compression was patented, leading to controversy and PNG development; patent expired in 2003. - File Extensions: .gif or .GIF. Mainly used for web graphics, animations, and simple art, GIF is efficient for images with fewer colors but not ideal for detailed or high-quality images.|
