Graphics File

JPEG, TGA, TIFF, DIB/BMP Files (.jpg, .tga, .tif, .dib, bmp)

  • JPEG is a commonlyUsed standard method of lossy compression for photographic images. JPEG is the most common formatUsed for storing and transmitting photographs on the World Wide Web.
  • Truevision TGA is a raster graphics file format. The format can store image data with 1–32 bits of precision per pixel. Color data can be color-mapped, or in directcolor or truecolor format.
  • TIFF is a flexible and adaptable file format. It can handle multiple images and data in a single file through the inclusion of "tags" in the file header. Tags can indicate the basic geometry of the image, such as its size, or define how the image data is arranged and whether various image compression options areUsed.
  • BMP files are usually not compressed, so they are typically much larger than compressed image file formats for the same image.
