PGM file description

The Portable Gray Map Image file is yet another raster image file, but this time around, the format supports both text and binary. The image that is saved using a .pgm format is usually a grayscale one which is being stored with its pixels represented through one or two bytes of information. While they are mostly stored in a binary format, they can also support ASCII representation. The information included in a .pgm file talks about the image header, dimensions, and the number of shades. The format has been developed by Jef Poskanzer and is used widely to represent portable gray map images.

First - the PGM file may be incorrectly linked (associated) with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this link by yourself. To do this, right-click on the PGM 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 PGM file should be solved forever.
Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the PGM file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
