GIF The .gif filename extension refers to the GIF graphical file format created by CompuServe in 1987. The format is from the class of raster graphics which uses a dot matrix type data structure of orthogonally placed pixels, each with their own color information. The file format has a rich history of usage in storing sprite data for video games especially those released in the early 90's. The GIF format has also been used in low-resolution animation clips distributed over the internet, and in design of sharp-edged art that utilize a palette of a few colors up to a max of 256 colors. The GIF file format has its advantage in its compression technique, which limits file size but does not compromise image quality. The file format natively opens on many of the popular web browsers.
ICO The .ICO filename extension refers to the ICON image file format originally developed by Microsoft. The extension is used to represent computer icon images of varying sizes designed for the operating system Microsoft Windows. Its use today has extended to developing icons for programs designed using the Microsoft developer's suite Visual Studio and other applications. Similar to other device independent bitmap file formats, the ICON file format is also in the raster graphics class of image formats where each individual pixel is part of an orthogonal dot matrix data structure with support for a limited palette of color information. As a resource file, the .ico file format has its strength in contextual use. This allows for multiple icon images of different color depth or size to be stored within the resource file and used when appropriate.
