TIFF image format supports lossless compression method, which means that the image quality is at its high level, while the file size is large indeed. TIFF can undergo editing, but will not lose any of its quality. This is the file format that is preferred by lots of photographers who enjoy the flexibility the format offers. TIFF can handle images and data by means of “tags” in the file header. Tags identify the basic geometry of the image – file size, or the way the image data is arranged. TIFF format is widely used for archival purposes. Similar to TIFF, PNG supports lossless compression method. There may be distinguished the following advantages of PNG:
– Various transparency options;
– Interlacing (gradual resolution);
– Gamma correction
