FlashPix

A bitmapped-graphics file format that maintains the image in several resolutions. It uses more storage space than a comparable TIFF file, but when viewed by a Web browser, only the resolution required for the current screen resolution is transmitted, saving download time. FlashPix files use the .FPX extension and conform to Microsoft's structured storage format which provides multiple "streams" within the file. Descriptive text may also be stored in an FPX file which identifies the image and how it was photographed or scanned.
