|Description||PPM (Portable Pixmap) is a file format used for storing digital images. It is a simple and widely supported format that can store both color and grayscale images.|
PPM files contain a header section, followed by the image data. The header specifies the image format, dimensions, and color depth, and can include additional metadata such as the image creator, creation date, and comments.
The image data is stored in a plain text format, with each pixel represented by three or four values (depending on whether the image is color or grayscale). These values represent the red, green, and blue color channels, and in the case of a color image, an optional alpha channel for transparency.
PPM files are often used for simple image processing tasks, such as converting between image formats or analyzing image data. They can be opened and edited using a range of software applications, including Adobe Photoshop, GIMP, and ImageMagick.
Overall, PPM is a simple and versatile image format that is widely supported and can be used for a range of applications.

|Description||PNG images provide lossless compression, that is why the quality of the picture is nice, but the size of the file is huge. Because of it this file format is used by photographers. PNG may have several layers of transparency and even include short text descriptions which help search engines to examine the file. Although PNG was developed to replace GIF and partly other formats, it doesn’t support animation since it can’t contain several images like GIF.|

The PPM (Portable Pixmap Format) and PNG (Portable Network Graphics) formats may seem at first glance to be distant cousins in the realm of image file types. PPM, a simple color image format, is arcane yet surprisingly powerful, allowing for quick and easy image creation. On the other hand, PNG is a modern format that offers high-quality image storage with the added perks of transparency capabilities. So, why would one convert a PPM to a PNG online?
