|Description||🔵 PGM file format was developed alongside the open-source Netpbm package of graphics program. Developed by Jef Poskanzer in 1988, PGM was a format for storing grayscale images and supporting bitmap. The PGM file format is forward compatible with recent graphics editing software like Corel PaintShop Pro X4, ACDSee Photo Manager 14, and ACD Systems Canvas 15. Being a plain text format, PGM can be edited using any available text editor, and thus survives the quintessential changes that image files undergo when transmitted via email. PGM files come in two types, only differentiated by magic numbers – P2 and P5, which helps graphics editor software identify the data encryption standard.|
|Technical details||🔵 Portable Gray Map Images can be stored away with each pixel taking up memory space of either 8 or 16 bits. There are two major sections in the plain text string of a PGM file – the header and image data. The header starts with the magic number, followed by characters indicating image width, image height, maximum grayscale shade value – never exceeding 65.536, all sandwiched by whitespaces. Though used mainly on the UNIX-based operating system, being open-source has earned the PGM file compatibility with macOS and Windows.|

|Description||🔵 PFM (Portable Float Map) is a grayscale or RGB image file format that stores pixel data as floating-point values. It was developed by Microsoft for use in printing and is commonly used in desktop publishing and graphics applications.|
|Technical details||🔵 The PFM format consists of two parts: a header and pixel data. The header contains information about the image, such as its size, color depth, and other parameters. The pixel data is stored as a series of floating-point values in row-major order, with each value representing the intensity of a single pixel. PFM files can be either grayscale or RGB. Grayscale images are stored as a single channel of floating-point values, while RGB images are stored as three channels of floating-point values, one for each color channel (red, green, and blue).|
