Portable Pixmap Image File
Portable Pixmap (PXM) is a file format used to store grayscale or color images in a portable, device-independent manner.
PXM image files are used to store and share grayscale or color images, and they are often used in scientific and technical applications where accurate color representation is essential. PXM images support a range of pixel depths, from 1-bit black and white to 24-bit color, allowing them to be used for various images and applications.
One unique characteristic of PXM image files is that they are device-independent, meaning that they can be displayed and printed on a variety of different devices without losing quality. This makes them a valuable format for storing and sharing images that need to be displayed consistently across different platforms and devices.
