SGI A .sgi extension file saves images in the original Silicon Graphics Image format. These files are originated from the library of SGI images that were there on every Silicon Graphics machine. SGI files are also referred to as RGB, IRIS or Irix RGB., .sgi image files can be saved in 8-bit color, 16-bit or 32-bit color. GIMP has the compatibility to read and write .sgi extension files and also has a dialog box that pops up to help select the compression type. The preferred compression is RLE and while it reduces the file size, it is advisable to check once it is done to ensure that the file size is indeed reduced as sometimes the size is more than the actual file size.
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.
