PTX is an image extension attached to RAW photos taken with a Pentax camera. Also known as "digital negatives", RAW images record image data exactly as perceived by the camera's lens and sensor, without any additional correction of color, brightness or focus. Some models of Pentax cameras also include PEF as an additional extension for shooting in RAW mode.
The XBM (X BitMap) format represents a monochrome image file usually used for storing cursor and icon bitmaps in the X graphical user interface. XBMs store data as C language data array, so they can be included directly into an application. They are, however, fairly large in size. In the late 1980s the XBM format was superseded by the XPM format for the X Windows System.
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 PTXs. But at the same time, it will allow you to apply a wide range of editing options.
reaConverter is quick to download, install and launch, and you don't need to be an IT specialist in order to understand in a few minutes how it operates.
Start reaConverter and load all the .ptx files you intend to convert into .xbm 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 PTXs 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 .xbm files. You can also spend a few more moments to apply additional editing to the images prepared for conversion.
Then pick the XBM 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
