File Format Overview

 

All code for handling the file formats supported in PMView has been written completely from scratch. Therefore, we are proud to be able of providing full technical support on all of the formats below and enhance support for a specific format when needed (for instance, the TIFF format). If PMView fails to load a file that you need, please contact us so we can try to support your file's format in our next release.
