The AVIF format is an image based container format designed to store image or image sequences which are compressed with the AV1 compression algorithm. The format has been around since 2019 and is based on the HEIF container format and as such it competes with the HEIC image format.

During tests the format has shown to perform better than JPG files not just in the reduced file size but in overall image quality. Support for the format is growing and is already supported in the Chrome and Firefox web browsers. AVIF files can also be opened in many 2D image editing applications.

The DDS file format was introduced my Microsoft in 1999 intended to be its standard image format for the DirectX 7 3D graphics Api. The format is used to store textures for use within 3D graphics and game environments and can be compressed or uncompressed.

The compression algorithm used by DDS was the previously proprietary S3 Texture Compression which could reduce the image file size down and was easy for the GPU to decompress in real-time. The format is still used and there are some 3rd party image editors that are compatible with the format.
