TIFF is an extensive raster image file format that supports lossless compression. It is widely used for editing and storing high-quality digital images, while retaining the full detail of the original source image. Commonly used by professionals, TIFF files are capable of storing multiple color depths including 16-bits per channel. They are also popular for exchange between different image editing applications.

TIFF files can store many different types of raster images, including defined layers, text, alpha channels and effects. They are capable of both lossy and lossless compression, allowing for flexibility when it comes to size vs quality. Unlike JPEG, TIFF is also relatively platform independent and is supported by a wide variety of operating systems.

ICO is a graphics file format used for computer icons. It was created by Microsoft for use with Windows, and most image editors support the creation and saving of this image type. ICO files contain small images and are typically saved in either 16x16 pixel or 32x32 pixel sizes, but larger sizes are also supported.

ICO files use a specific header which contains metadata, followed by an array of bits that represent the pixels. It supports several color depths (typically 1, 4 and 8 bits per pixel) and can include optional transparency and alternative image formats. ICO files can sometimes contain multiple sizes or variations of the same icon, allowing it to be scaled to different sizes while maintaining a consistent appearance.
