Pentax Electronic File (PEF) is a raw image file format produced by Pentax digital cameras, which stores an unedited and uncompressed image. The benefit of working with a raw image is that it provides high-quality images, the ability to recover information, ease in making corrections, and many other advantages and benefits.
Ricoh Imaging Americas Corporation provides PENTAX PHOTO Laboratory software, which is the default for opening PEF. Another common program for viewing PEF is PENTAX PHOTO Browser. A non-Pentax program for opening PEF is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
Many other programs can open this file type successfully. For both Microsoft Windows and macOS, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom works well for opening and converting PEF. On Linux/Unix, darktable is open source, cross-platform, and free. PEF is usually converted to Adobe Digital Negative Raw Image (DNG), Tagged Image File Format (PEF to TIFF), JPG (PEF to JPEG), or Portable Network Graphics (PEF to PNG) file formats.

Bitmap (BMP) is a pixel-based file format that stores two-dimensional images, generally without any compression. BMP utilizes a dot matrix data structure called raster graphics, which establishes the color depth of the image. BMP is mostly used for digital publishing of photographs. However, due to the lack of compression, BMP files are usually large.
BMP can be device-dependent or independent. BMP opens readily in the Microsoft Paint application and is often associated with Microsoft operating systems. Despite the association with Microsoft, a device-independent BMP, or DIB, can open on almost any device, operating system, or application.
In addition to opening BMP files, many applications can be used to create them, such as Adobe Illustrator. Should you need to convert the BMP into a vector-based image, then consider using CorelDRAW. Other applications that can open BMP files include Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Photos, Apple Preview, Apple Photos, and ColorStrokes.
