The G3 format is used to compress image files in TIFF format when sending faxes. The compression algorithm allows for the use of a standard 10-times compression, which can be increased. It is used to remove excess image data, which makes it possible to reduce the size of the image and speed up delivery.
This is a graphic file format that supports HDR. It is used for exchanging graphics data between applications. It is also used for development in the Netpbm suite of graphics editors. A PBM image has either a per-pixel RGB structure or instructions for representing grayscale tones.
