svgz The .svgz extension files are Scalable Vector Graphics files that have been compressed using the GZIP compression. These files support graphical elements that include transparency, animations, gradients and filters. They consist of graphics data that is put together in an XML format. Images, text and vector graphic shapes which are paths that comprise of curves and straight lines are the three kinds of graphic objects allowed by .svg extension format. Excellent dynamic and interactive images can be created using the Scalable Vector Graphics technology which has been developed by W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) SVG group in 1998 and launched in 1999. It has been used by many web designers since then for attractive graphical representation. As per W3C recommendation, SMIL is the right choice for SVG when it comes to animation. Onmouseover or Onclick assignments can also be configured for objects in the SVG graphics to handle specific animation events to make the image dynamic and interactive.
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.
