Convert image files with our easy to use and free tool. Our tool lets you upload a PNG (Portable Network Graphics) file and from this, create a new image saved in the PCX (Picture Exchange) format that you can then download and edit/use within image file editors or use for high definition printing applications.
Here are 2 simple steps to convert your PNG to PCX.
First click the "Upload..." button, select your PNG file to upload. Select any configuration options. When the PNG to PCX conversion has completed, you can download your PCX file straight away.
We aim to process all PNG to PCX conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds but can be more for larger more complex files so please be patient.
We aim to create the most accurate conversions with our tools. Our tools are under constant development with new features being added every week.
Yes, of course! We do not store the PNG file you submit to us. The resulting PCX file, once created is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

The PNG graphics file format is a commonly used format for storing 2D images which can be highly compressed by the use a palette if the image has a sufficiently low number of colors (256 colors in general). The PNG file is then further compressed using the DEFLATE compression algorithm to ensure small file sizes that are fast to download.
PNG files are seen as the logical successor to the GIF image file format and was devised in the mid-1990's as a superior format to GIF. PNG files are generally used for company logos, icons and other non-photographic image content. Saving a digital photo in the PNG format will create a much larger file than an equivalent JPG image hence the PNG format being unsuitable for most digital photo content.

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.
