TIF files are commonly stored as TIFF as well.||The Graphics Interchange Format (better known by its acronym GIF) is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.|
|Technical details||TIF is a file format used to store graphics with a high quality and images with a high amount of colors like digital pictures. Files with the TIF extension include support for multiple pages and layers. Most efficiently, these files can be saved in a lossless (uncompressed) format or in a lossy way using JPEG compression.||GIF supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. GIF images are compressed using the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) lossless data compression technique to reduce the file size without degrading the visual quality.|
