If you convert set color depth. You can use PCL Converter command line, it allows you to convert and set color depth at once. In computer graphics, color depth or bit depth is the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in a bitmapped image or video frame buffer. This concept is also known as bits per pixel (bpp), particularly when specified along with the number of bits used. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors.Color depth is only one aspect of color representation, expressing how finely levels of color can be expressed; the other aspect is how broad a range of colors can be expressed., now an then, you will
The first step—Downloading

pcltool.exe –bitcount 24 D:\in.px3 D:\out.jpg
- D:\in.px3 is to specify a px3 filename or a directory for input,
- D:\out.jpg is to specify the jpg file name for output,
- -bitcount 24 is to for image conversion.
Once the input is done, press “enter” key, you will see,
The fourth step—Checking
Open your contained folder to check if px3 file has been converted to jpg.
From the pictures, you find px3 file has been converted to jpg file. There are plenty of functions about PCL Converter command line, if you are interested, you can try the related converting work by taking above steps as reference or use different parameters to .
