GIF files have been around since the mid-to-late 1980's and were introduced by CompuServe as a way to compress color images into small file sizes suitable for downloading which at the time most download speeds were limited. The format allows varying size color palettes up to 256-colors in total to be defined from a palette of 16 million colors.
Later on the ability to add animations to the GIF file format was added. GIF files became a popular image file format for the early internet due to the small size, large color palette and animation capabilities and is still popular today.
The PSD file format is the native raster image format used by Adobe's Photoshop image application. The format stores raster image data and is the most popular image format for computer graphics around today. Originally available on Macintosh computers Photoshop was ported to Windows in 1993.
The format has evolved over the years and compared to similar formats stores not just raster image data but additional information such as layers, masks, alpha channels, clipping paths and more. PSD files have a limit of 30,000 pixels in height and width and an overall file size limit of 2GB.
