Technical Details:
A PPM file extension is an acronym for a Portable Pixelmap file, a 24-bit color graphic image file formatted using text. These files are used to temporarily store images in PC and Unix based operating systems and are described by a red, blue, green color format, using a PNG, JPEG or other common file format to save the image permanently in a compressed format. PPM files that contain one or more pixmap images, are called "raw" PPM files, while a "plain" PPM contains only one image, and is a very simple structure that can be sent easily via email. In this format, each pixel is assigned a number from 0 to 65,536 to specify the color of the pixel. The file also stores data about the heighth and width of the image, its maximum color value, and any whitespace data.
