The PCX (Personal Computer Exchange) image file format is associated with PC Paintbrush, an image editing software initially designed for MS-DOS by ZSoft Corporation. At first, PCX files stored a limited range of colors but in time their range was extended to a 24-bit (true color) palette, and PC Paintbrush was adapted for Windows too. Though widely popular during the days of MS-DOS, the PCX format in time lost its appeal and was gradually replaced by formats such as JPEG and PNG.
The HRU file format is a bitmap image format associated with the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT), which is a model developed through the SWAT-CUP program in Microsoft Windows. This software generates a detailed simulation model aimed to assess the result of various land management techniques in the case of large-size watersheds. HRUs represent output files containing detailed information compiled through SWAT, generally under the form of extensive tables with a large number of variables.
The quick and simple way to handle your files is to get a quality piece of software, such as reaConverter. Although it is fast, this software is extremely efficient in managing a wide range of conversions. As you will soon realize, reaConverter will help you avoid spending countless hours trying to figure out how to convert PCXs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
Start reaConverter and load all the .pcx files you intend to convert into .hru because, as opposed to most free online converters, reaConverter supports batch conversion. So you can save the time and energy you would lose with doing repetitive operations.
Select PCXs from a folder or by drag-and-dropping them directly into the reaConverter window.
Go to the Saving options tab and decide where you want to save new .hru files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the HRU as output format. To help you do this, a series of buttons is conveniently placed at the bottom of the reaConverter window, so you can simply press on the one you need or click Plus button to add new options.
Then simply press the Start button and your conversion will begin in no time!Try Free Trial Version
