GIF is one of the most common raster image formats. Its name is an abbreviation for Graphics Interchange Format File. The developer is the CompuServe organization. A feature of this particular image format is its ability to support the animation function. You can edit animated GIFs in different programs (for example, Easy GIF Animator). Animation is achieved due to the fact that a file of this format carries in itself in a certain sequence several raster images at once. With a depth of up to 256 colors, significant data compression in GIF files is possible without loss of quality.
JNG is a raster format. It has a close relationship with PNG. The JNG format uses exactly the same structure as PNG. It stores data in the main JPEG stream, is able to store the alpha channel stream in the form of PNG or JPEG, as well as information in the form of text. It also supports gamma and color correction. This image file format uses lossless compression similar to standard .JPEG files. The format was developed as a sub-format for .MNG objects. However, it is quite suitable as a separate raster image format. Some JNG files include an optional alpha channel for transparency. It does not support standard JPEG files. It is also possible to include auxiliary data sections, which may contain information about color space and comments. JNG is a format that is not very popular. Nevertheless, it has such a very good property as a large degree of lossy graphics compression. He also has an alpha channel. Color data is stored in JPEG format. For alpha, there is one of two storage options. It can be compressed using JPEG, like a grayscale picture. Or you can use the same as in PNG, lossless compression. The format is best suited to store texture atlases in mobile games. A good win for a mobile game.
