|Full Name||Portable bitmap|
A PBM file, short for Portable Bitmap, is a simple and straightforward image file format used to store monochrome (black and white) images. It's part of the Netpbm family of formats, which includes PGM (Portable Graymap) and PPM (Portable Pixmap). PBM files are incredibly basic, containing only two colors - black and white - represented as binary values, typically 0 for black and 1 for white. Due to their simplicity, PBM files are easy to create, manipulate, and read, making them an excellent choice for tasks where color or complex image structures are not necessary.
PBM files are often used in various applications, including simple graphics, text-to-image conversions, and basic image processing tasks. Their compact size and easy-to-parse structure make them suitable for situations where efficiency and simplicity are crucial. For example, PBM files are commonly used in computer programming to represent and manipulate bitmap images, especially when dealing with fonts, icons, or simple graphical elements in applications.
While PBM files are limited to black and white images, they can be converted into other formats like PNG or JPEG if color or grayscale is required. Additionally, because they are plain text files, PBM images can be edited manually using a text editor or generated and manipulated programmatically with ease, making them a versatile choice for certain image-related tasks.
