Comparing Different Image Formats

  1. 1. Comparing Different Image Formats Computer technology has introduced separate image formats for the purpose of storing and organizing digital images. These are the computer applications introduced to store and transmit different images of various sizes. A person can contain and use graphics more adroitly and conveniently by using the formats specially designed for image computer applications. The advantage of using these computer applications is that a person can compress the size of the images. This is possible as a few file formats are equipped with the compression algorithms that compress the size of a document. It also makes the pictures or graphics more portable as well as compatible across multiple platforms. Main image file formats are PDF, PNG, BMP, JPEG, TIFF and many more. A Portable Document Format is an application that is designed to contain not only images but also text and other objects. You can scan an image and convert it into PDF file format. The advantage of storing your picture in this application is that it can be compressed with the advanced algorithms present in PDF application. If you have saved a text in the form of image, you can use PDF converter tool to create an editable text out of a PDF image. The PNG is another application which is an acronym of Portable Network Graphics. It supports truecolor which include sixteen million colors. It can handle large sized and colored graphics. It is a well matched application for editing pictures as well as for transmitting photographic images to other users. JPEG (Joint Photographic Experts Group) is a compression method and it is a lossy compression. Other types of applications are GIF which is a short form of Graphics Interchange Format. It is a computer application which supports 256 colors. It is mainly used by the people to save and store graphics which contains a few colors such as simple shapes, logos, diagrams and cartoon style pictures. It also supports animated pictures or those with the multimedia effects. The BMP computer application is the one which is uncompressed. It is widely accepted in Windows programs and it is simple to create and use.
