Microsoft DirectDraw Surface

This is the format that is used in the OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX development environment. It is used to store bitmap images of user interface environments and textures. It allows you to store information in compressed and uncompressed forms. It is used for texturing game models and storing entire textural arrays to create games and 3D-software applications. DDS is used to develop the latest-generation video game consoles. It makes it possible to compress texture blocks 'on the fly', which increases performance when you run the application.

High Efficiency Image File

HEIF is a container that can be a single image or a sequence of images which makes it ideal for Apple's Live Photos. It is based on HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding). The format is more convenient than the old JPEG mostly because it is twice smaller despite the fact that is has excellent quality. Therefore you can storage more images on your Apple device which is great. HEIF was developed in 2013 by MPEG (Moving Picture Experts Group) but has become popular only when Apple decided to replace JPEG with it in 2017. However, not so many programs are able to open it which is why you might need to convert it to another format.
