File extension.gif
CategoryImage File
DescriptionThe GIF file format is a type of bitmap image and has become popular due to the growth of the internet. This file format supports up to 8 bits per pixel therefore giving an image the ability to contain 256 distinct colours chosen from the 24-bit RGB colour space. It also supports animations and whenever you see a logo or other sharp edged line art then you are probably dealing with the GIF format. It uses the lossless data compression technique which reduces the file size without any impact on the quality.

Technical DetailsThe GIF file format was invented by Compuserve for their online service, but they made the specifications publicly available. GIFs are able to hold multiple bitmaps of up to 256 colors each, using LZW (Lempel Zev Welch - a simple form of file compression that removes inefficiencies in the data storage without losing data or distorting the image) compressed raster data to minimize file sizes. The idea is to lessen the amount of colours in a GIF image to the minimum number necessary and to therefore remove stray colors that are not required to represent the image. A GIF graphic is unable to have more than 256 colors but it can have fewer colors, down to the minimum of two (black and white). Images with fewer colors will compress more efficiently under LZW compression.

File extension.webp
CategoryImage File
DescriptionWebP is an image format developed by Google in 2010. The format allows users to save an image in either lossy or lossless format. Google has made bold claims about the compression efficiency of the format stating that it can be up to 34% smaller than the equivalent JPEG or PNG file. Google believes that through the adoption of a more efficient image format, the speed of the web as a whole can be increased due to the volume of images being viewed at any one time across the world.

Technical DetailsWebP lossy compression works by a technique of prediction. Each block of pixels are predicted based on other blocks of pixels surrounding it. The difference between the prediction and reality is then encoded. Due to the efficiency of the prediction technique many of the blocks contain a zero difference which results in greater compression and thus a smaller file size. WebP lossless compression works by using parts of the image that have already been analysed to construct other parts of the image.
