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.
PPM The .ppm file extension is used for Portable PixMap format files and is intended to be an intermediate format that can be used in the development and conversion of other file formats. This format was specifically designed so that it could easily be exchanged between various platforms. It is very simple but not very storage efficient. Before the PPM format was introduced, Jef Poskanzer invented the PBM format in the year 1980 for transmission of monochrome bitmaps as ASCII text in email messages. He also developed a tool library for easy conversion of the PBM files to other graphical formats and vice versa. This library was called Pbmplus and was released in 1988. Later Poskanzer developed the PPM format along with the PGM format and the requisite tools that were added to Pbmplus.
