Information about PCX and BMP file formats

🔸 File format PCX BMP
🔸 Full name Paintbrush Bitmap Image BMP - Microsoft Windows bitmap
🔸 File extension .pcx .bmp, .dib
🔸 MIME type application/pcx, application/x-pcx, image/pcx, image/x-pc-paintbrush, image/x-pcx, zz-application/zz-winassoc-pcx image/bmp, image/x-bmp
🔸 Developed by ZSoft Corporation Microsoft
🔸 Type of format Image File Raster graphics
🔸 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 It has since been superseded by other image formats such as png, gif, and jpeg.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. The BMP file format, also known as a bitmap image file or device-independent bitmap (DIB) file format or simply a bitmap, is a raster graphics image file format used to store bitmap digital images independently of the display device, especially on Microsoft Windows and OS/2 operating systems.
🔸 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. The bitmap image file consists of fixed-size structures as well as variable-size structures appearing in a predetermined sequence. Many different versions of some of these structures can appear in the file due to the long evolution of this file format.
