GIF file is an image, often accompanied by animation. It is formed by means of specialized graphic editors, it can carry several raster images in a certain sequence. GIF format is widespread in the field of creating banners, as well as the graphic shell of video content. The main advantage is data compression without an obvious loss of quality at a depth of up to 256 colors; modern editions of GIF animations include customizable transparency functions. Animated images consist of a number of static frames, as well as data on the required time of demonstration of a frame. Almost any program for viewing, processing images and video can open the extension, including on mobile devices, smartphones and tablets, regardless of the current operating system.
JPG is one of the most recognizable, popular, and comprehensible bitmap image formats.This format appeared as a result of the work of the group of photo experts “Joint Photographic Experts Group”. The main task of this group of developers was to develop an optimal image compression algorithm. Today, this problem has been solved successfully. It is used .jpg most often for processing and storing full-color images with realistic images, where brightness and color transitions are inherently present. Also .jpg format is used for storing and transmitting graphic digital content (photos, scan copies, digitized pictures). It is most convenient for placing and transmitting compressed images over the network, because it takes up little space compared to other formats.
