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.
JXR is a raster image category file format whose full name is JPEG XR Image. JXR files were created so that you can support better compression and also become more accurate than .JPG files. The development of the image, which is stored in JPEG XR format, has been handled by Microsoft from the very beginning for its Windows Media program. Implements support for images with a color depth of 48 bits of RGB. Used when professional high-resolution image editing is required. Also provides lossy and lossless compression support. JPEG XR, formerly called HD Photo and Windows Media Photo, is an encoding standard. This is the file format for still images. It was patented by Microsoft. This standard supports Windows Vista, like any operating system on which the .NET Framework 3.0 is installed. It defines color formats for printing and displaying. It also defines special encoding in order to expand the dynamic range, lossless and lossy compression functions, as well as efficient decoding for many resolutions with minimal computer resources in order to convert or decode. JPEG XR is inherently high performance. For example, with 85% quality, there are practically no artifacts.
