PPM file format information

Full NamePortable pixmap format
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

A PPM file, which stands for Portable Pixel Map, is a widely used raster image file format that stores graphics in a plain-text, human-readable format. PPM files are part of the Netpbm image file format family, which also includes formats like PGM (Portable Gray Map) and PBM (Portable Bitmap). PPM files are known for their simplicity and ease of creation, making them a common choice for storing images that don't require compression or advanced features.

PPM files store images in a straightforward manner by representing each pixel's color as a combination of red, green, and blue (RGB) values. These values are typically expressed in decimal numbers and are organized in rows and columns to form the image. PPM files are considered lossless, meaning they do not use any compression techniques that might degrade image quality, making them suitable for tasks where image fidelity is crucial, such as image processing and analysis.

One of the key advantages of PPM files is their platform independence, as they contain no platform-specific data. This means they can be easily exchanged between different operating systems and software applications without compatibility issues. However, their plain-text format can result in larger file sizes compared to compressed image formats like JPEG, making PPM files less suitable for storing high-resolution images for web use or storage efficiency.
