What is PCD file?

PCD file extension is used by CD image files created by picture processing devices manufactured by Kodak. PCD files store high-resolution images in compressed form.

One PCD file, many resolutions

Single PCD file typically stores five copies of given image, each at different resolution. The first image, the smallest one, is a thumbnail used as a preview image; it usually is 192x126 pixels in size. Intermediate resolution images are at 384x256, 768x512, 1536x1024 pixels, respectively, and the highest resolution picture is at 3072 x 2048 pixel in size. An additional, sixth, resolution is reserved for Pro Photo CD standard image of 6144 x 4096 pixels in size.

Technical data

  • PCD files allow for storing 24-bit color depth images on CD.
  • PCD uses encoding based on transformed gamma YCC encoding.

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the PCD file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the PCD file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the PCD file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PCD file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the PCD file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the PCD file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
