Raster Image Files

Raster graphics are considered to be the most common image file type. They typically consist of a grid of pixels, each of which stands for an individual color of the picture.

Common raster graphics examples are digital photos, Web graphics, and others.

The majority of raster image formats involve image compression; however, some of them do not use any compression.

Raster image file extensions include but not limited to .JPG, .PNG, .GIF, .TIF, .BMP, etc.
