Information about HEIC and GIF file formats
|🔸 File format||HEIC||GIF|
|🔸 Full name||HEIC, High Efficiency Image Format||GIF - CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format|
|🔸 File extension||.heic||.gif|
|🔸 MIME type||image/heic, image/heic-sequence||image/gif|
|🔸 Developed by||Moving Pictures Experts Group||CompuServe|
|🔸 Type of format||Raster image||lossless bitmap image format|
|🔸 Description||HEIC is the new standard image format introduced by Apple with its 2017 update from iOS 10 to iOS 11. It is also known under the acronym of HEIF, which stands for High-Efficiency Image Format. The HEIC format was developed by MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group), otherwise known for video and audio formats such as MP3 or MP4. Being the new default or standard image format for iOS 11 devices, HEIC was designed to replace the JPG format. As a result, it's smaller in size with comparable quality while also supporting transparency. Furthermore, HEIC files can contain several images which fit Apple's "Live Photo" functionality. Furthermore, it stores information about image editing like rotation and cropping, which enables the user to revert the changes later on.||The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF) is a bitmap image format introduced by CompuServe in 1987. It has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.|
|🔸 Technical details||The lossy compressed HEIC format is based on HEVC (High-Efficiency Video Compression), also developed by MPEG. With transparency and the ability to store more than one image, HEIC files can also contain 16-bit colors, whereas JPG files can only support 8-bit. However, HEIC files still have compatibility issues, even though they are already posted and saved to social media or cloud storage as JPG images since they are automatically converted. Third-party apps or computer programs can still have difficulties interpreting HEIC files, though. Luckily, you can disable saving images as HEIC on an iOS 11 device by going to Settings > Camera > Formats > Most Compatible, which will force iOS 11 to save images in the JPEG format.||GIF supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its palette of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. In addition, GIF images are compressed using the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) lossless data compression technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality.|
