A .ppm file is an image saved in the Portable Pixmap format. This format is used primarily by Netpbm, an image manipulation library created by Jef Poskanzer. PPM files typically contain color images, which may be saved in either a plain text or binary format.

While many image viewers and editors can open PPM files, the files often have large file sizes, since they are not compressed. To reduce a PPM file's file size, you may want to convert it to a compressed image format, such as PNG (.png), JPEG (.jpg), or TIFF (.tiff). Note that you may lose some image quality when you convert a PPM image to a compressed format.
