Image formats that are widely used.


 Photography has not only evolved over the years, but it has also reached a whole new level of excellence in the fields of printing and digitalization. Every day, billions of pictures are produced and disseminated.

-JPG image format.

It is now the most commonly used picture storage format. Everyone may save a photo in this format and be confident that it will appear correctly on any web page, and all apps designed to operate with this format will be able to open and change it without issue.

-GIF image format.

also a popular format for online publication Unlike JPEG, it has a severely limited number of colors—256. This is both its shortcoming and its advantage. Because of color constraints, it is feasible to obtain the lowest size when compared to other formats. This format is frequently used to generate dynamic visuals such as progress bars and waiting indicators.

-PSD file format.

This is the Photoshop editor's document format. It saves layer information as well as information on masks, paths, brushes, channels, and so forth.Consider the key drawbacks of this format. So : s-To begin with, this is a format created by Adobe. This indicates that you'll need some specialized program to handle or convert it, such as Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator. And this software is not cheap.

 -TIFF file format.

 This format, along with PSD, is now the most often used for printing. Its key feature is the ability to save one or more pictures (like PSD) with the highest possible color depth.
Everything would be all right. However, a huge number of colors always leads to a large size. The TIFF format's file size might reach several terabytes, implying that its path to the web is also blocked.

-The HEIF file format.

We've arrived. We are fortunate to be introduced to the Moving Picture Experts Group format here (MPEG).In reality, this format is a container in which you may keep everything you need, similar to a suitcase. The format employs HEVC video encoding and boasts a 50% gain in compression over competitors.Again, the storage space reductions in HEIC format with similar quality to JPEG are rather obvious.

-Format WebP.

It is a format that Google recently created to further compress photographs for online publication. The image can be up to 80% lighter than a JPEG of comparable quality, as the creators promise.Since all browser makers have declared their support for this format in new releases, we suggest all developers to give it closer consideration.
