PGM file format information

Full NamePortable graymap format
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

A PGM file, short for Portable Gray Map, is a popular image file format used for storing grayscale images. It is a simple and widely supported format that is commonly used in computer graphics and image processing applications. PGM files can be in two formats: P2 and P5. P2 format is a plain text representation of the image, where pixel values and metadata are written as human-readable text. P5 format, on the other hand, stores the data in binary form, making it more compact and efficient for large images.

PGM files are known for their simplicity and ease of use. Each pixel in a PGM image is represented by a single grayscale value, typically ranging from 0 (black) to 255 (white), allowing for 256 shades of gray. This makes PGM files ideal for storing and processing black-and-white images, such as scanned documents, line drawings, or simple icons. Additionally, PGM files do not support color information, which further contributes to their simplicity.

One of the key advantages of PGM files is their platform independence. They can be opened and manipulated by a wide range of image editing and processing software on various operating systems. This makes PGM a versatile format for tasks that involve grayscale images, such as image analysis, computer vision, and certain types of scientific research where color information is not necessary.
