DIB (an acronym for Device-Independent Bitmap) is a graphic file format especially developed for representing bitmap digital images. As the name suggests, DIB format is similar to BMP, and the difference resides in their different header information.
Compressed DIB files using RLE (Run-length encoding) method can store 4 and 8 bits per pixel, whereas uncompressed images can support 1, 4, 8, and 24 bits per pixel.
When users want to access DIB data, they will require graphic viewers that support the format.
