DDS are files invented by Microsoft to be used in games, mostly as textures. Images can be compressed to save space but the compression methods defined by DDS are all very fast in terms of coding and decoding.
GIF images were created by Compuserve. They can used no more than 256 colors and a single color transparenty (no Alpha channel). Today are rare since they offer low quality and huge filesizes. GIF animations are still in use.
