|🔸 Type of format
|lossless bitmap image format
|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 It has since been superseded by other image formats such as png, gif, and jpeg.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.
|Portable Network Graphics (PNG) is a raster graphics file format that supports lossless data compression. PNG was created as an improved, non-patented replacement for Graphics Interchange Format (GIF) and is the most used lossless image compression format on the Internet. However, PNG itself does not support animation at all. MNG is an extension to PNG that does. Members of the PNG Group designed it.
|🔸 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.
|PNG supports palette-based images (with palettes of 24-bit RGB or 32-bit RGBA colors), grayscale images (with or without alpha channel), and full-color non-palette-based RGB[A] images (with or without alpha channel). However, PNG was designed for transferring images on the Internet, not for professional-quality print graphics, and therefore does not support non-RGB color spaces such as CMYK.
