TIFF is a format that allows you to store raster graphics with tags. It was developed by Aldus Corporation in conjunction with Microsoft so that it can be used with PostScript. Aldus Corporation owns specifications. Subsequently, this company merged with Adobe Systems. It is she who now owns the copyright to these specifications. Typically, TIFF files (Tagged Image File Format) are with the extension .tiff or .tif. Aldus was specifically engaged in the development of the format in order to achieve the preservation of scanned images. The popularity of TIFF can be explained by the fact that it is preferred in order to store images that have a large color depth. The format is used to send faxes, scan, recognize texts. It is widely supported in the printing industry. TIFF was chosen as the main graphic format of the NeXTSTEP operating system. Then from this system TIFF support migrated to Mac OS X. At first, the format supported lossless compression. Then it was supplemented in order to support lossy compression in JPEG format. We emphasize that the maximum weight of a document, if stored in this form, is no more than 4 GB. To open a TIFF file larger than 2 GB, you must run Photoshop CS.
DCR is a graphic format for bitmap images. DCR, or Kodak RAW Image File, is a Kodak format RAW file. Files of this type are usually used in digital SLR cameras in order to take photographs and at the same time not to compress or adjust the color. The format was developed by Kodak, whose specialization is in the manufacture of photographic equipment. Kodak RAW Image File, like other graphic RAW formats, is primarily designed to store digital images in an uncompressed and unprocessed form. In this case, they can be edited more accurately. They are stored on a computer so that later the photos can be edited more accurately compared to JPEG images. After processing on the computer, the DCR file can be converted to any popular format. Say in JPEG. DCR images are capable of storing data without compression. They do not include default colors and color correction. And this is inherent in a JPEG image. The main advantage in using this RAW format is that you can have better image quality if digital post-processing is performed. To make the details more visible, and the shapes more defined, you need to reduce noise and better balance the white color.
