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.
TIFF The TIFF format was developed by the company Aldus in 1986, which was later acquired by Adobe systems who now own the rights on the format specification. TIFF, which refers to the Tagged Image File Format, is a raster graphics file format popularly used in desktop publishing and print. Its initial development goal was to create an alternative and cross platform format that would replace the numerous proprietary formats used by scanners developed in the 80's. Later revisions, after Adobe took over the development of the format, saw the TIFF format become extensible to adapt with growing and changing needs of the graphics industry. TIFF supports high color depth and is well suited to OCR applications, scanning, image editing and authoring as well as word processing. The format uses the filename extension .tiff for files stored in the format.
