BMP (Bitmap) is very popular nowadays due
to the common use of Windows. That is because BMP is the
standard format used by Windows for saving image files. It
contains more image information than the JPEG, and there is
almost no compression of images. So it takes a larger disk
space. Presently, 24 bits per pixel BMP files are the most
common in all the 1, 4, 8, 15, 24, 32, 64 bits per pixel BMP
DIB is device-independent
bitmap, which exchanges DIB between devices and applications
with a lot of internal data.
RLE is Run Length Encoding, lossless
data compression in bmp format to decrease the file size.
2bp or 2bpp is also a kind of Windows
Exif (Exchangeable Image File) is a
specification for the image file format used by digital
cameras. It can store digital photograph’s properties
information and the shooting data. Exif is introduced by the
Japan Electronic Industries Development Association (JEIDA).
Version 2.2 is dated April 2002. Exif is existing in JPEG,
TIFF, RIFF files, with the addition of specific metadata
tags. It is not supported in JPEG 2000, PNG, or GIF.
The PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a
method to store images by compressing images with no loss of
information. PNG files can store colors with up to 48 bits
per pixel and gray scales with up to 16 bits per pixel.
Moreover, it can also store an optional alpha channel for
transparency. When PNG is used in the connected network, it
can correct gamma and color of images automatically. So you
can accurately render the images on different display
To convert bmp dib rle 2bp exif to
SVG is a new two-dimensional vector graphics created in Aug,
2008 by W3C's SVG Working Group. It is not a private format
but an open and co-developed industrial standard and thus
SVG could be fast be developed and applied. As a vector
graphics format, SVG outweighs GIF and JPEG (Bitmap image
format) obviously by providing high-resolution picture,
independent text, smaller size, and etc.
