A .dcx file is a multi-page raster image file, originally used by ZSoft PC Paintbrush. A single DCX file is actually several images in a different format, PCX (.pcx), combined into a multi-page document. DCX files are often used for documents sent by fax. The images in a DCX file usually use an indexed color palette with 2, 4, 16, or 256 colors, although the format also supports 24-bit true color.

Since the images in a DCX file are usually pages of a document, the best formats to convert to will be lossless formats that also use indexed color, like PNG (.png), GIF (.gif), or TIFF (.tif). A lossy format like JPEG (.jpg) can introduce compression artifacts around text and shapes.
