What is PPM?
PPM which is short for Portable Pixmap format is 24-bit color image formatted using a text format. PPM stores each pixel with a number from 0 to 65536, which specifies the color of the pixel. It also stores the image height and width, whitespace data, and the maximum color value. The Portable Pixmap format uses an uncompressed and inefficient format compared to other bitmap image formats. Therefore, it is seldom used for storing large images.
