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.
JPM is a JPEG2000 bitmap category file format. The JPEG 2000 Part 6 standard defines that the .jpm extension refers to the JPEG 2000 Composite Image File Format. The JPEG2000 graphic format is a new standard that appeared in 2000 as an update to the JPEG format. He uses a type of technology called wavelet compression, which provides the best ratio of size and quality. The JPM format (i.e., the JPEG 2000 Multi-layer Image Format, ISO 15444-6) was developed for documents that have multiple pages and can be processed as a multi-page photo converter. The purpose of the JPEG 2000 Part 6 composite image format is to work primarily with documents and facsimile images. Compared to regular JPEG 2000 images, a .jpm file is a composite image with many layers. This file can have many pages. Moreover, each such page can have several raster objects. Moreover, in different encodings (JPEG, JPEG 2000, JBIG). They are located in a certain way and make up a single whole. JPM files are used as “digital originals” that store scanned copies of documents and other images and / or texts.
