File extension.wmf
CategoryImage File
DescriptionDeveloped by Microsoft, the .wmf format is a proprietary graphics file type. WMF was first designed to act as a format that allowed vector graphics to be converted to bitmap images and vice versa. The WMF acted as a bridge file, enabling compatibility between the two formats. As new platform independent image formats such as JPEG were developed the need for bridging files such as WMF was removed. The most well known use of the file type is for the early incarnations of clip art that were bundled with Microsoft Office.

Technical DetailsA .wmf file may contain both vector graphics and bitmap images to enable portability between two incompatible platforms. The file contains a list of instructions that allows the graphics device to understand how to render the file. It is a 16 bit file.

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.
