Description Kodak – the photography giant needed a way of effectively archiving images on different data storage media, the solution they came up with is the Photo CD format. Taking pictures with cameras with sophisticated lenses and documents scanned with high definition scan heads always generates high-resolution copies that could eat up chunks of memory space on Kodak devices. Forthwith, the PCD format utilizes an image compression system to encode images in slices of 24-bit. A PCD file can support images of multiple resolutions, with the highest being 6144×4096 pixels.
Technical details Though PCD format supports image resolutions as high as 6144×4096 pixels, images are mostly encoded unto storage media at a resolution of 3072×2048 pixels. However, these two image resolutions are encoded with a similar color depth of 24-bit. Saving images in the PCD format is quite similar to the proprietary high-resolution video compression technology patented by Apple Inc.

Portable Gray Map Image

File extension .pgm
File category images
Description PGM file format was developed alongside the open-source Netpbm package of graphics program. Developed by Jef Poskanzer in 1988, PGM was a format for storing grayscale images and supporting bitmap. The PGM file format is forward compatible with recent graphics editing software like Corel PaintShop Pro X4, ACDSee Photo Manager 14, and ACD Systems Canvas 15. Being a plain text format, PGM can be edited using any available text editor, and thus survives the quintessential changes that image files undergo when transmitted via email. PGM files come in two types, only differentiated by magic numbers – P2 and P5, which helps graphics editor software identify the data encryption standard.
Technical details Portable Gray Map Images can be stored away with each pixel taking up memory space of either 8 or 16 bits. There are two major sections in the plain text string of a PGM file – the header and image data. The header starts with the magic number, followed by characters indicating image width, image height, maximum grayscale shade value – never exceeding 65.536, all sandwiched by whitespaces. Though used mainly on the UNIX-based operating system, being open-source has earned the PGM file compatibility with macOS and Windows.
