Description

The TGA format was originally defined in 1984 by AT&T EPICenter and later became Truevision following a successful buyout. The format is a raster graphics format for use originally with high-end PC graphics cards intended for use in video editing with the format mainly supporting NTSC and PAL video resolutions.

The format stores images in various levels of color depth starting at 2-bits-per-pixel (bpp) all the way to 32-bit where color would occupy 24-bits with the final 8-bits dedicated to the alpha channel. The format of the file is fairly simple compared to other formats of the time such as BMP and TIFF.

Description

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.
