πŸ“Œ A .DIB object can rely on the raster image stored and opened up in the Device-Independent Bitmap shape. On the layout and constitution, the .DIB structure is quite close to a .BMP bitmap image build-up, but is distinguished by peculiar informational characteristics of the header section. In the conclusional part, the .DIB resources may be uncompressed or compressed into the archived form. Nevertheless, a majority of the .DIB file items are available in the decoded shape. The extension is compatible with the 24-, 8-, 4-, and 1-bit pixels for decoded graphical images, and 8- or 4-bit pixels for RLE-encrypted graphics. 24-bit .DIB visual content utilizes 8-bits for each particular RGB color channel. Initially the .DIB technological standard has been intended to be applied with OS/2 and Windows platforms.
