JPF is a raster image category file format that is the successor to the .JPEG image format. Like some other file name extensions (.jpx, .jp2, .j2k), the .jpf extension refers to the JPEG 2000 image format. It is needed to designate the JPEG 2000 Image file type. And JPEG 2000 files are an international standard (ISO / IEC 15444) bitmap format. It was developed by the Joint Photographic Experts Group, JPEG. It serves as a good replacement for the JPEG standard, which is older, but, as before, is in demand and widespread. Compared to JPEG in JPF format, wavelet compression is used, due to the alpha channel transparency is supported, as well as a variety of color models. Also, compared to JPEG, this format provides better scalability of images, provides the ability to achieve smaller file sizes and have a higher level of quality. The format is able to combine compression with losses and without losses. Provides support for image transparency and additional metadata information. It can be viewed in QuickTime Player 7, as in recent versions of Photoshop, provided that the JPEG2000.8bi plugin is installed. Many images also have the extension .JP2 or .JPX.
XCF is a file format from the raster graphics category developed by GIMP. The specified extension is considered the standard image format specifically for the GIMP graphics editor. In its characteristics, XCF is very similar to the PSD raster graphics format, which is native to Photoshop. XCF files do not support the function of saving the "history of cancellations", however, for other characteristics, they are highly praised by experts. So, they retain channels, transparency, layers, guides. Data compression in this format is lossless. The name of the format is associated with the organization of experimental computing (eXperimental Computing Facility) of the University of California, Berkeley.
