Full Name: Picture Exchange
Mime Type: image/x-pcx
The PCX file format is a legacy image file format originally released in 1985 by ZSoft Corporation. It was the native file format for the PC Paintbrush application and soon became one of the standard image formats for DOS.
The format uses an indexed palette method for storing color information and supports formats starting at 1-bit-per-pixel (bpp) through to 8-bpp, though support for 24-bit color was added later on. Image files based on the PCX format can still be found today and are supported by a limited number of modern applications.
Full Name: ZIP Archive
Mime Type: application/zip
The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989 and over time the format has received many revisions.
ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built in support in many operating systems including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
