Some clients asked me “Textile sublimaiton printer can print what kind of format of the picture” Today, I will give you the answer.
Nowadays, there are 24 commonly used formats of pricture, but not all of the formats can be applied to the sublimation textile printer.
Because in different industries, there are different requirements for the format of the picture. For example: the website code picture, is using the webp format; Some moving images are in GIF format; Digital camera products take pictures with date, location, using EXIF format and so on.
So for nomally digital sublimation printer, what kind of picture format support?
Generally, most printer support JPEG format, a small number support TIF format. However, the most useful of the two is still the TIF format.
TIF images are flexible and can be subdivided into four different formats:TIF-B is suitable for binary image: TIF-G is suitable for black and white grayscale image; TIF-P for color images with a palette: TIF-R for RGB true color images.
The first data structure in the TIF image file is called the image file header or IFH.This structure is the only fixed part of a TIF file.The IFD image file directory is a block of information of variable byte length.Tag is the core part of TIF file. It defines all image parameters to be used in the image file directory,all image parameters to be used are defined in the image file directory,Each directory entry in the directory contains an argument to the image.In other words, images in TIF format are more likely to preserve the designer's original idea of color, and the image's parameters perfectly match the design of the output software. The printed pattern is consistent with the one displayed on the computer.
Another image format, JPEG format loss of image compression will make the original image data quality reduced, then the pattern effect printed out is significantly reduced, the color is different from the computer.
Because the JPEG format compresses the image, when using sublimation printer, the image size is smaller than the TIF format and requires less storage space on the computer. TIF format pictures will be relatively large, will take up computer space, but the current computer configuration, or can meet the daily printing factory storage TIF format space needs.
