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.

DEC SIXEL Graphics Format

SIXEL is a bitmap graphics format developed by DEC (Digital Equipment Corporation) to use on printers and terminals. Such image consists of six pixels high and one pixel wide represented as an escaped sequence. If you want to open a SIXEL file but do not have a DEC terminal, the only way is to convert it to another more common format.
