PCX Image Format PCX Converter
The PCX file format was introduced by ZSoft in the 1980s for Paintbrush Bitmap Image files. The Paintbrush software was developed for Windows PCs as a drawing and graphics editing program. Like other bitmap images, PCX files are raster images comprising pixels in a grid. The PCX format supported 24-bit colour, 8-bit greyscale and 1-bit black and white images. PCX files were compressed to make the file size smaller.
The format is not very commonly used anymore, especially as ZSoft no longer exists. However, the PCX format is still used by some scanners and fax machines. If you have a PCX image, you should still be able to open it in most programs that support raster files. These include Microsoft Photos, Apple Photos, Apple Preview, Google Photos, and image editors like Adobe PhotoShop, CorelDRAW or Corel PaintShop Pro.
JPG Image Format JPG Converter
JPG, or JPEG, is one of the most widely used digital image formats. JPG is a universal format which can be opened by almost all image-viewing or -editing programs, by web browsers, and by certain other apps, and they’re supported by most devices. JPGs are 2D pixel-based ‘raster’ images, which makes them better for photographs or scans, rather than digital illustrations which are often better as ‘vector’ images. Many cameras, smartphones, and basic photo or drawing programs will automatically save into JPG format. However, you can usually adjust settings to save into other formats if needed.
JPEG stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, which is the name of the committee that standardised the format. JPG is a ‘lossy’ format, meaning that it is compressed to save storage space and make it easier to share. This compression can affect quality, but this loss of quality isn’t noticeable to most users.
