.SPIFF File Extension
File TypeStill Picture Interchange File Format
What is an SPIFF file?
Bitmap image stored in the SPIFF format, which was designed for interchanging image files between application environments; contains compressed image data split into header, directory, image data, and indirect data sections; used for storing image data on a hard drive, or for transmitting image data over a network.
SPIFF images support bitonal or continuous-tone (color or grayscale) images. They also support several different compression algorithms, including JBIG and JPEG.
NOTE: The SPIFF format was designed to replace the .JFIF format. It is still backwards compatible with JFIF.
