ZSoft Paintbrush Bitmap Image File
Windows Picture and Fax Viewer
The PCX file format was developed by ZSoft Corporation, with the first release of the .pcx extension coming into the public domain in 1985. PCX is a contraction of PiCture eXchange, and was the first file format to support bitmap images; during its day of prime, PCX was the format of choice on computers that sport the DOS, and Windows operating system. However, the relevance of the PCX file format has been overshadowed by more recent and standard image formats like JPG, PNG, and GIF. The latest release of the PCX file format was in 1991, and as would be expected, the drop in popularity of the PCX has rendered its source company (ZSoft Corp) comatose.
As first of its kind, the PCX format was prolific in its hay days, most especially due to its singularity in supporting bitmap images. The standard PCX file has three main elements: a 128-byte header, the actual image data sandwiched in between, and an accompanying 256-color palette – that makes sure your image is not displayed in shades of gray. Another reason why PCX was the file format of choice for pictures in the 1980s was the tremendously low processing power required for data compression. Since PCs were giant in size but petty in processing power, PCX aided the conservation of the same for other essential activities.
CompuServe Graphics Interchange Format
Corel Paint Shop Pro
Microsoft Windows Photo Gallery Viewer
GIF, Graphics Interchange Format, is one of the most popular bitmap image formats on the World Wide Web, allowing you to share images. It also supports transparent views of various animations. Such files are used to develop web advertising with sequentially changing pictures and the graphics shell of video files. They use scan-line images with the depth parameters up to 256 colors of the RGB palette. The process of compressing files in GIF does not affect the quality in any way, as there is no loss because of the compression technique. Due to this, it is possible to convert to other formats while preserving the original image properties. Many applications open the extension to view and process images and video content installed on PCs and mobile devices regardless of OS.
The format was developed by Compuserve specialists, especially for its use in the web environment, which provided broad public access to data on such files. The extension uses the LZW algorithm to carry out a parallel process with the removal of segments containing insufficient information. This ensures the preservation of high-quality pictures. Thanks to the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm, the format handles graphic files with repeating sections well, particularly images with a large number of single-color pixels horizontally. Interlaced data storage is also possible. Scan-line data is compressed to the smallest size. Reducing the number of colors required to create an image is provided by removing shades unnecessary to perform this process. The range of available GIF colors is from 2 (black and white) to 256 while reducing the number of colors leads to a decrease in the file size.
