PPMPPM - Portable pixelmap graphic. The portable pixmap format is a lowest common denominator color image file format. 24-bit color image that is formatted in text format. Each pixel is assigned a number from 0 to 65536 that defines the color of the pixel.

For your convenience, we also added command line support to this batch image converter. This feature can be used for creating *.BAT files, scheduling batch conversion tasks or executing calls from other applications. The executable file of the program can be started with various parameters defining the conversion result. Virtually every aspect of the process can be controlled from the command line – just refer to the help section of the program for details. Here is a short example of a typical command:

ivimconv.exe "c:\bitmaps\old1.ppm" /flip /negative /rotate=(90,1) /convert="c:\bitmaps\new1.bmp"
