What is a bw file?

A BW file is a bitmap image file. The BW file type was originally associated with Silicon Graphics. BW files may be compressed or uncompressed, and can support both black and white and RGB color images. BW files may be opened using image viewing applications such as Preview (Mac) or Image Viewer (Windows), but may also be opened with a text editor, since many BW files contain ASCII images. BW files may be opened in image-editing programs and then converted to more commonly-supported image file formats like JPG or PCX for further editing and distribution.
