PCX stands for “Picture Exchange”, which is a Paintbrush Bitmap image format developed by ZSoft Corporation. It was developed as one of the initial bitmap image formats for DOS and Windows, supporting 24-bit true color images, 1-bit black and white images, 8-bit grayscale and indexed color images. Widely used as the imaging standard on the DOS platform, this raster image format also served as the native file format for PC Paintbrush. Although PCX image format has been replaced by newer improved formats like PNG and BMP it is still used by a number of fax and scanning applications.
We designed Painter to open a wide range of file formats, including all of the following.
