RTF Image

Stands for "Rich Text Format." RTF is a file format standardized by Microsoft for saving formatted text files. Unlike a basic text file, an RTF file can include information such as text style, size, and color. Modern versions of the format can include images as well.

The RTF format is widely supported, meaning it can be read by nearly all word processors. Several basic text editors support the RTF files as well.
