πŸ“Œ A .JIF schema definition can be described as a raster graphic image stored, encoded, and opened up in the JPEG Interchange Format (briefly, JIF). Particularly, the .JIF file pattern grasps web graphics and digital photos, at most like .JPEG and .JPG visual image containers. Basically, .JIFF file resources are encoded and packaged with lossy Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) algorithm to significantly reduce the outcome size of a resulting image. It should be directly specified that the .JIF specification standard was especially popular in the 1990s prior to the moment when enhanced branches of the .JPEG schema superseded the .JIF pattern. A solid majority of Mac and Windows image editors started saving images as .JPEG and .JPG file instances, which minimized the overall .JIF files usage frequency. Images saved in the .JPEG tech basement still ordinarily employ the .JPG or .JPEG file extension marker. Nevertheless, as a fit .JIF alternative, they may also rely on one of the following analogues:

  • .JPE - a suitable substitution of the .JPG and .JPEG labeled tags.
  • .JFIF - Applied for visual graphics encoded in the JPEG File Interchange Format (JFIF), which stands as a sophisticated variation of the common .JPEG file approach. Precisely, the .JFIF principle is intended to be applied for exchanging a minimal amount of JPEG-encoded content across diverse computer platforms and between peculiar apps.
  • .JFI - Three-symbol format analogue to the four-symbol .JFIF marked layout.

How to open an .JIF file?

πŸ“Œ The .JIF data file build-up is perfectly supported and opened by all default raster image editors, available within your operating system from the very start, such as Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and more. Besides, it is suggested to make service of custom .JIF tech embraced office suites, such as Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Planamesa NeoOffice, or other .JIF consistent third-party solutions, distributed on the freeware open based principle.
