Information about XCF and GIF file formats
|🔸 File format||XCF||GIF|
|🔸 Full name||eXperimental Computing Facility||GIF - CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format|
|🔸 File extension||.xcf||.gif|
|🔸 MIME type||image/x-xcf||image/gif|
|🔸 Developed by||eXperimental Computing Facility of the University of California at Berkeley||CompuServe|
|🔸 Type of format||Image File||lossless bitmap image format|
|🔸 Description||The XCF file format is an image file created by the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP), a freely distributed image editing program. XCF files resemble a Photoshop PSD, supporting layers, channels, transparency, paths, and guides. The XCF file format is backward compatible (all versions of GIMP can open earlier versions' files) and, in some cases, forward compatible. However, using XCF for data interchange is not recommended by the developers of GIMP, as there may be format changes in future versions, and XCF reflects various internal data structures for GIMP.||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 XCF format is designed to store the entire part of the state of the Gimp that is specific to one image, apart from undoing data. An XCF file is a sequence of bytes that describes a stack of layers and channels on a canvas, which is effectively just a rectangular viewport for the layers and channels. It contains a series of data structures, with the main image structure coming at the very beginning of the file. The first 9 bytes of an XCF file are the ASCII string "gimp xcf".||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.|
