A file to store text created using free software based on OpenOffice. It’s used to store books, reports, notes, and other textual information. The file has an XML structure, is used as an alternative DOC format and has an open source code.
This format is used to compress TIFF images when sending them via fax machines. This format helps reduce the data transmission time. Group 3 eliminates redundant data during compression in order to reduce file size. The standard 10:1 compression ratio may be increased to the user's preferences, but it can lead to a significant loss of image quality.
