How to display outdated content

The PCX image format is not widely used nowadays. It was the native file format for PC Paintbrush and became one of the first widely accepted DOS imaging standards. It has been replaced with other image formats since then. One can come across PCX in games when stores full-screen graphics. Unfortunately, due to the outdatedness of this format, a viewer may display PCX in a wrong way or even fail to display it at all. ImageConverter Plus offers quite a few options for converting PCX to other image formats. Our image converter supports 13 image formats for output conversion, and one of the preferred ones is TIFF. TIFF is the image format used for storing images including photos and line art. It is very flexible, and alongside with very high quality it supports several compression algorithms. TIFF is platform independent and is supported by numerous image processing applications. TIFF supports most color spaces, RGB, CMYK, YCbCr, etc. TIFF contains tags that describe what data the image file includes. The most widely used compression algorithm used is LZW which is most effective when compressing solid indexed colors (graphics), and is less effective for 24 bit continuous photo images. Converting images from PCX to TIFF can be applied on individual images as well as image folders.
