The gih file extension is related to the Hires-Bitmap picture image format, developed for C64, an 8-bit computer developed by Commodore company.

The gih file stores picture image (320x200, mono).

This gih file type entry was marked as obsolete and no longer supported file format.

This type of file is no longer actively used and is most likely obsolete.

This is usually the case of system, configuration, temporary, or data files containing data exclusive to only one software and used for its own purposes. Also some proprietary or closed file formats cannot be converted to more common file types in order to protect the intellectual property of the developer, which is for example the case of some DRM-protected multimedia files.
