The PCX file format is a legacy image file format originally released in 1985 by ZSoft Corporation. It was the native file format for the PC Paintbrush application and soon became one of the standard image formats for DOS.

The format uses an indexed palette method for storing color information and supports formats starting at 1-bit-per-pixel (bpp) through to 8-bpp, though support for 24-bit color was added later on. Image files based on the PCX format can still be found today and are supported by a limited number of modern applications.
