The AVIF file format is aimed at being a modern replacement for the popular JPEG image format. Developed by the Alliance for Open Media, AVIF is an advanced image file format that leverages the cutting-edge compression algorithms used by the AV1 video codec.

The aim of the format is to surpass the quality of the equivalent JPEG file while packing a smaller file size via the use of the AV1 compression algorithm. The aim of the compression algorithm, which is a lossy algorithm, is to reduce the file size by removing detail from the image that the eye would not normally notice, thus reducing the size of the final AVIF file.

Support for AVIF files is still growing, with many modern image editors able to read and write to the format. The latest versions of the most popular web browsers have also moved to support AVIF images, having seen the benefit to website developers of reduced image sizes and thus reduced bandwidth usage.

The DDS file format accompanied the launch of Microsoft's Direct X suite of game development tools in the early 2000s. DDS files are used by Direct X as an image storage format and, as such, support a wide range of color depths and can also record alpha channel data.

DDS files were often used by game developers to store texture images used in complex 3D virtual worlds. Games would often employ multiple versions of the same DDS texture image at different resolutions using a 3D effect known as mip-mapping, whereby different textures are selected to be rendered depending on the proximity of the 3D object to the view port.

Varying levels of compression, both lossy and non-lossy, can be used to reduce the size of DDS files. Certain image editing applications can open DDS files, though they have largely been replaced with other popular formats such as PNG and JPEG.
