What is a rle file?

An RLE (Run-Length Encoding) file is an older type of raster image file. RLE was a common image file format in older versions of Microsoft Windows and CompuServe, but has since been displaced by more sophisticated image file formats such as PNG, TIFF and JPG. RLE files are compressed bitmap image files. The RLE file format is still supported by all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, and Linux. RLE files are also supported by many popular image editing programs, such as Photoshop and Corel PaintShop. RLE files can also be converted to other, more commonly accepted image file formats.
