What is a PCD file
The PCD file format is the standard format for storing images on a photo CD created by scanning images using the Kodak Photo scanning hardware. Those PCD files are afterwards used to create Photo CDs.
Photo CD images are generally scanned in a 3072x2048 pixels resolution, but can also be stored at a resolution of 6144 x 4096 using Kodak's Pro Photo CD service. Both of these resolution sizes utilise 24-bit color. PCD images us an encoding based on gamma transformed YCC coding.
Here's a small, but not exhaustive list of programs that can open PCD documents:
- ACD Systems Canvas 15
- Corel PaintShop Pro X6
- Apache OpenOffice
- Corel WordPerfect Office X7
- ACD Systems ACDSee 17
