Color quantization reduces the number of distinct colors used in an image while preserving visual image quality.
Dither is a form of noise, or 'erroneous' signal or data which is added to sample data to minimize quantization error.
Interlacing is a method of encoding a bitmap image. When the image is received partially (especially over a slow communications link), a degraded copy of the entire image is displayed to the user, so that he may decide whether to download the whole image or abort the transmission.
Interlacing is supported by the following formats: GIF stores the lines in the order 0, 8, 16, ..., 4, 12, ..., 2, 6, 10, 14, ..., 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, ....
