SVG is one of the formats of two-dimensional vector graphic files that are created on the basis of documents in XML format. The developer is Adobe Systems, and the name of the format is an abbreviation for Scalable Vector Graphics File. In the SVG format, not only two-dimensional vector images can be created, but also mixed vector-raster images. At the same time, SVG files are text files, and therefore they can be opened in most popular text editors. This extension is able to support both static and animated graphics. At the same time, when working with such files, editing occurs without loss of quality.
PCX is one of the first bitmap image formats developed by ZSoft for the PC Paintbrush program. This is the original bitmap format for the DOS / Windows platform. It supports monochrome single-bit black and white images, an eight-bit gray scale, indexed color images, and full-color 24-bit RGB model images. But there is no support for additional color and alpha channels, clipping paths, color management. The format provides for the application of the simplest compression algorithm (RLE) so that information is not lost. Now it has a purely historical significance. The PCX file format has been replaced by newer image formats. However, the format is still used in separate applications in order to scan and send faxes. PCX multi-page fax documents use the .DCX extension. Most DOS-based programs are suitable for viewing PCX (PC eXchange) files. In particular, the viewer Norton Commander. The big drawback of the PCX format is that it has too many versions. This can be explained by the fact that the PCX standard is open, and therefore it has been widely used by most independent software developers. And therefore it is constantly updated.
