File Format Glossary

All the diffrent File Formats and their use

BMP a compression-free format that preserves image data but creates large file sizes
Cineon used in the Kodak Cineon Digital Film System, which transfers images originated on film to the Cineon format and back to film with no loss of image quality
DCS (Desktop Color Separations) a version of the standard EPS format that lets you save color separations of CMYK images
DICOM the most common standard for receiving medical scans
DNG the Adobe Digital Negative format, meant to be an industry-wide standard format for raw image data
EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) a standard format used to transfer PostScript artwork between applications; unless it is imported as a Smart Object, Photoshop rasterizes vector graphics on opening
GIF a “lossless” compression format with a limited color palette; and is better suited to illustrations, as it supports animation and background transparency
JPEG a common standard for compressing photographic files; image data is lost each time you edit and save in JPEG format (“lossy” compression format)
Large Document Format (PSB) preserves layers and most plug-in features for files up to Photoshop’s limit of 300,000 pixels in width or height
OpenEXR a film format with high color fidelity and a high dynamic range suitable for use in motion picture production
PDF (Portable Document Format) created by Adobe, the Portable Document Format allows readers to view accurate electronic versions of documents even if they don’t have the creation application
Photoshop Raw a file format for transferring raw-data images between applications and computer platforms; not to be confused with Camera Raw
PNG a newer “lossless” compression format; supports millions of colors, multiple bit depths (8, 24, 32), 24- and 32-bit alpha channels, and gradated transparency but with larger file sizes than JPEG; not all browsers support PNG format
PSD (Photoshop Document) native Photoshop format, which we recommend for most image editing tasks
Targa designed for systems using the Truevision video board; commonly supported by MS-DOS color applications
TIFF (Tagged Image File Format) a standard format for exchanging files across applications, computers, and scanners; creates large files with the option of “lossless” compression; can be resaved without quality loss
