XCF Image Format XCF Converter
The XCF file format was developed for use with the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP). GIMP is a free, open-source image-editing program for raster graphics, which was developed by a group of students at Berkeley in the 1990s. XCF stands for eXperimental Computing Facility. XCF files can contain layers, transparency and paths, and you can edit them in a similar way to Photoshop PSD files. GIMP is a free alternative to premium image editors.
There are some websites that can open GIMP files for viewing; however, you usually need to download a software application to view and edit XCF files, unless you convert them into another format like PNG or JPG. You can open or create XCF files in the GIMP software. They will also open in Corel PaintShop Pro and some other programs like CinePaint.
PNG Image Format PNG Converter
PNG is a common type of image file. The file extension PNG is short for ‘Portable Network Graphic’, and the format was created to offer improvements over the GIF format. Like JPG, PNG is a 2D ‘raster’ image format. However, unlike JPG, PNG files can have transparent or semi-transparent backgrounds around a design. This makes them perfect to use for company or brand logos or graphics that need to be placed in documents or over other images. They are also sometimes used for detailed graphs or diagrams online.
PNGs use lossless compression, which offers high-quality images with more colours. However, this often means PNG files are bigger than some other formats like JPG. The PNG format is open source, and you can open these files using almost all devices, image editors and viewers. Many smartphones now allow you to easily remove backgrounds and create PNGs of individual parts of photos.
