Converting DCS to FLIF

DCS is a RAW image format associated with some models of Kodak cameras. The main advantage of shooting in RAW mode is that the photograph includes almost everything its sensor captures — without the pre-defined adjustments of color, brightness or noise that normally apply when shooting in compressed formats such as JPEG. However, RAW images are only a good idea for photographers who can handle advanced image processing using specialized software. Moreover, they can be very large in size, so they tend to be difficult to store and transfer.

FLIF (Free Lossless Image Format) is a royalty-free format launched at the end of 2015 as "work in progress" with the aim of offering a better alternative for storing lossless images than the existing PNG, WebP, BPG, JPEG2000 and JPEG XR. FLIF provides similar image quality as the other extensions, but in a file size than can be up to 74% smaller. The new format uses a form of the Adam7 algorithm for compressing images, offering progressive interlacing that allows users to obtain a reasonable encoding of an image even from a partial download.
