CategoryRaster Image Files
File Format Description

24-bit color image formatted using a text format; stores each pixel with a number from 0 to 65536, which specifies the color of the pixel; also stores the image height and width, whitespace data, and the maximum color value.

The Portable Pixmap format uses an uncompressed and inefficient format compared to other bitmap image formats. Therefore, it is seldom used for storing large images.
