File Extension PPM
Category Image File
Technical Details A .ppm extension file comprises of two parts which include the header and the image related data. The header, in turn, is distributed into three parts that are demarcated by line feeds. The first line comprises of the magical PPM identifier which can either be P3 for the ASCII version or P6 for the binary version, and the next line has the image's height and width displayed in ASCII characters and the last line indicates the maximum color value of the pixels. The image data formatting is dependent on the magical identifier, given in the first line of the header. Each pixel consists of 3 decimal values ranging from 0 to the specified maximum value written in ASCII characters. The 0 in the decimal values denotes that the color is not present or is turned off and the maximum value denotes that the color is at its maximum level. Conventionally the image data is stored in a left to right and top to bottom order with each pixel being stored as a byte. The usual RGB (Red ñ Green ñ Blue) order is followed to store the components.
