Easy conversion of JPG to PGM
JPG is the most popular image file format. Without doubt!
Most digital cameras and image capturing devices have it as the default format. The fact that it reduces the file size by 50 to 75% saving on storage space. Also, it supports and can display more than 16 million colors at a go. Plus it can support up to 65,535 x 65,535 pixels. Crazy, right?
Due to its small size, it’s one of the best formats to use to optimize your site. Small-sized images use very little bandwidth when loading hence preserving your site’s performance and loading speed. JPG uses lossy compression to ensure images as small as possible and load faster.
However, during compression, all the redundant information is permanently removed from the image. The image quality is affected but an average visitor on your webpage can’t spot the changes. The compression ratio ranges from 2:1 to 100:1. The more edits and saving you make the worse the image quality. Our advice, work with RAW JPG images make necessary edits, and save the changes one time.
PGM files, on the other hand, are grayscale images saved in a portable gray map (PGM) format. This file might be in binary (P5) or ASCII (P2) text format. The later only has one image while the former might hold several images. You can open them in ACDSee Photo Manager 14, Corel PaintShop Pro X4, or ACD Systems Canvas 15.
