I wanted to understand a graphics file format... any format that could
be disected with a programming language...any programming language.
What is the absolute simplest bit map file format we can save out a
black and white image in GIMP?
I think it might be PPM in my version 2.2.6 but there may be somehing
simpler for black and white images like
what I look to end up with in making screen color seperations.
Space is not an issue any more with 80 gig hard drives so compression is
not needed any more.
So leaving out ALL compressed graphics formats.... whats left?
Interesting enough....ASCII art is a SAVE AS option.
I wonder how fine a grain of detail we get when saving as ASCII art.
I have to play with that one.
