Description The .pcx file extension was developed in the 1980s by the ZSoft Corporation. It has since been superseded by other image formats such as png, gif, and jpeg. As a result, the file type is rarely used at present. However, certain scanning devices still output to the .pcx format.
Technical details The PCX format was one of the first common bitmap image formats. A PCX file comprises three elements: the header, image data, and the 256 color palette. PCX utilizes a lossless compression technique. The compression technique used is not processor-intensive, which was an advantage at the time of development due to hardware's relatively limited processing power in the 1980s.
